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 resources on biosecurity including guidance and presentations on biosecurity measures in the freshwater environment.

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