National risk assessment of recreational boating as a vector for aquatic invasive species: Fs70-6/2017-025E-PDF

“Aquatic invasive species (AIS) pose a significant threat to Canadian fresh, estuarine, and marine waters. An important vector for their introduction and spread is recreational boating, yet the magnitude of this vector and its ecological risk in Canada are largely unknown. In response to a request for science advice from the National Aquatic Invasive Species Committee, a federal-provincial-territorial committee that reports to the Canadian Council of Fisheries and Aquaculture Ministers, Fisheries and Oceans Canada led a national risk assessment to assess the risk posed by recreational boating as a vector for AIS in freshwater and marine systems in Canada"--Introd., p. 2.
