Assessing the presence and spreading of marine aliens on Svalbard (Marine aliens on Svalbard)

This project will provide a further assessment of the presence of marine aliens (non indigenous species - NIS) in Svalbard harbours as point of entry, in comparison with coastal reference locations to assess potential spreading of these organisms.

Thank you for adding your research project to the growing pool of knowledge about the research going on in Svalbard and its surrounding waters!

As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at. There are {{related}} projects registered in RiS that match with your keywords, and below you will find links to the 3 that have the most relevant match.

As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. This could also help you save some expensive costs ;) There are {{close}} projects registered in RiS that have registered their fieldwork sites within 10 km from you, and below you will find links to the 3 closest fieldwork locations.

Summary

In a recent study the (potential) presence of several marine aliens or non-indigenous species (NIS, species not native to the area) in Svalbard coastal waters was described. With the rapid warming of the region and increase in vessel activities, the possibility for both introduction and settlement of marine NIS is increasing every day. The best way of mitigating NIS is to minimise the introduction of new species, so a close monitoring of the arrival of new and especially harmful NIS is required. This project will provide a further assessment of the presence of NIS in Svalbard harbours as point of entry, in comparison with reference locations at the Atlantic and Arctic ocean currents to assess potential spreading of NIS.
