What is biosecurity?

Biosecurity is about reducing the risk of introducing or spreading invasive non-native species (and other harmful organisms such as diseases) in the wild.

This section provides guidance on biosecurity including documents and presentations on biosecurity measures in the marine environment.

All the RAPID LIFE resources are freely available to be used for training and development of biosecurity actions.
