Publication of the Invasive Non-Native Species Didemnum Vexillum Action Plan
The British-Irish Council Environment work sector tasked the Invasive Non-Native Species subgroup with producing an Action Plan to address the issues associated with the invasive non-native tunicate Didemnum Vexillum. This Didemnum Vexillum Action Plan was finalised and received Ministerial approval at the BIC Environment work sector Ministerial meeting held virtually in November 2020. The objectives within the Action Plan aim to mitigate against the potential environmental and economic harms posed by this problem species, and are being taken forward by the BIC Member Administrations along with industry stakeholders.
