Marine invasive species are species that are not historically known to occur in a certain area but have been introduced by humans at some point in time, rather than by natural means. These animals, plants, and algae—like the European green crab (Carcinus maenas) and green fleece (Codium fragile)—have forever changed the ecology and economy of Massachusetts. To promote understanding, effective monitoring, and management of these species, CZM has published and/or funded the publications described below. These publications are listed alphabetically by title under the following categories: general information on marine invasive species, management, identification, monitoring, Rapid Assessment Surveys, impacts, and prevention. See CZM Publications for the full list of materials published by CZM.
