Proceedings of the national peer review on the marine screening-level risk assessment protocol for aquatic non-indigenous species: Fs70-4/2016-033E-PDF

February 4-6, 2015, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia /

“A national peer-review science advisory process was held to provide science advice on a new marine screening-level risk assessment (SLRA) tool for non-indigenous species (NIS). This process consisted of three parts: Part 1 was held in Montreal, Quebec, from 22-24 November 2011; Part 2 was held in Burlington, Ontario, from 19-21 March 2013; Part 3 (these Proceedings) was held in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography from 4-6 February 2015. The purpose of Part 3 of this process was to address the following three objectives: i) to review a new marine screening-level risk assessment tool (CMIST – Canadian Marine Invasive Screening Tool) and optimization methods; ii) to provide a list of higher-risk non-indigenous invertebrates already introduced and others not reported in three Canadian ecoregions (i.e. Gulf of St. Lawrence, Scotian Shelf, and Strait of Georgia); and iii) to provide science advice on the suitability of CMIST to classify the level of risk presented by marine non-indigenous species (NIS) in other taxa”—Summary.
