Although there is already concerted action from many groups to manage invasive aquatic plants, their removal is often costly and problematic. To control and eradicate these species effectively a strategic and targeted approach is required. This needs to be run alongside programmes to raise awareness of the risks and impacts associated with these species, as well as embedding biosecurity in the normal working practices of stakeholders who work in aquatic environments.
Large amounts of ‘Best Practice’ knowledge in controlling these species can be found in the RINSE project area. This Workshop aims to help disseminate this knowledge, by reviewing success stories in eradication and highlighting promising new management approaches to RINSE project partners, wildlife managers and stakeholders from across the RINSE area. Day one will be devoted to presentations on successful case studies of eradication. On the second day, we will take a trip on the River Yare by boat, witnessing some of the habitats affected by these species first hand.
