Aquaculture is a fast-growing segment of the world food economy and a leading vector of aquatic invasive species in the United States and abroad. Surprisingly, little national or international oversight exists even for deliberate introductions of exotic species in aquaculture. The authors of this Policy Forum propose a policy agenda on exotic introductions as aquaculture expands that includes scientific risk assessment for all nonnative introductions and single-agency oversight for the… Expand
Non-Native Aquaculture Species Releases: Implications for Aquatic Ecosystems
* Corresponding author Abstract Aquaculture is undergoing a rapid worldwide expansion. Of significant concern is the increasing use of non-native species, with subsequent escapes of these species andExpand
ECONOMICS OF AQUACULTURE AND INVASIVE AQUATIC SPECIES—AN OVERVIEW
TLDR
An overview of the dominant issues illustrated with cases from around the world ofaquaculture production and invasive species is provided. Expand
Expansion of aquaculture parks and the increasing risk of non‐native species invasions in Brazil
Aquaculture is the main vector for introduction of non-native species in Brazil and around the world. Despite the potentially serious and irreversible ecological impacts caused by non-native species,Expand
Alien Species in Aquaculture and Biodiversity: A Paradox in Food Production
TLDR
It is pointed out that there is potential for aquaculture, which is becoming an increasingly important food production process, not to follow the past path of terrestrial food crops and husbanded animals in regard to their negative influences on biodiversity. Expand
Introduced aquatic species for inland aquaculture: Boon or bane?
Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center Boosting fisheries and aquaculture production is the primary driver for the introduction of aquatic species to inland water bodies. Various records showExpand
BIVALVE AQUACULTURE AND EXOTIC SPECIES: A REVIEW OF ECOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS AND MANAGEMENT ISSUES
TLDR
Because the risk of exotic species to ecosystems and the bivalve farming industry itself may be great, effort should be directed to better predict and halt introductions of potentially harmful species. Expand
Bio-economical and ethical impacts of alien finfish culture in European inland waters
Since 1989, and in comparison to the global trend, inland aquaculture production of European finfish has declined. To date, the yearly European freshwater aquaculture production is 371,727 tons,Expand
Use and exchange of genetic resources of emerging species for aquaculture and other purposes
TLDR
It is intended to raise awareness of the potential for increasing production and revenues from emerging species groups with an emphasis on an underlying link to biodiversity conservation and ecosystem preservation, and how this information will inform policy on access to the genetic resources and the sharing of benefits derived from their use. Expand
Aquaculture as a vector for marine invasions in California
TLDR
It is cautiously concluded that current aquaculture importation in California represents a minor risk as a vector for introductions of NIS. Expand
A Serious New Threat to Brazilian Freshwater Ecosystems: The Naturalization of Nonnative Fish by Decree
TLDR
The Brazilian Congress proposed a law to allow the rearing of nonnative fish in aquaculture cages in any hydroelectric reservoir of the country, which may “naturalize by decree” some of the worst invasive species in the world as a means of developing inland Aquaculture and economy. Expand

Effect of aquaculture on world fish supplies
TLDR
If the growing aquaculture industry is to sustain its contribution to world fish supplies, it must reduce wild fish inputs in feed and adopt more ecologically sound management practices. Expand
One species with two biologies: Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) in the wild and in aquaculture
TLDR
This paper explains why escaped domestic Atlantic salmon have had an impact on wild Atlantic salmon populations and now threaten Pacific salmonids as well and why a polarization of views between aquaculturists and environmentalists will not resolve the problems. Expand
Will Black Carp Be the Next Zebra Mussel?
TLDR
A war is raging up and down the Mississippi River Basin over an imported mollusk-eating species of Asian carp, the black carp, which fish farmers say has become an indispensable tool to control fish parasites that threaten their livelihood. Expand

An Introduced Sabellid Polychaete Pest Infesting Cultured Abalones and Its Potential Spread to Other California Gastropods
TLDR
This worm is not native to California and was subsequently found in rocky intertidal and subtidal habitats in southern Africa, where it had not previously been recognized, and its unique biology suggests that it may be a useful experimental probe for studies of molluscan shell deposition and may also serve to reveal howmolluscs defend themselves against organisms attempting to settle in and foul their apertures.

Invasive Carp in the Mississippi River Basin
TLDR
Before black carp ever become a problem, the Mississippi Basin will have been contending for mussels. Expand
Control of the Trematode Bolbophorus confusus in Channel Catfish Ictalurus punctatus Ponds Using Salinity Manipulation and Polyculture with Black Carp Mylopharyngodon piceus
TLDR
Both the use of 2.5 ppt NaCl and black carp appear valuable management tools for controlling the digenetic trematode in caffish ponds. Expand
Spatial and Temporal Patterns in Plant Standing Stock and Primary Production in a Temperate Seagrass System
TLDR
The spatial patterns of standing stock and net above-ground primary production of benthic autotrophic components of the eelgrass meadow in Padilla Bay, Washington, were studied seasonally for one year to identify patterns of growth and distribution of epiphytic algae and sediment associated algae.
