Marine Invasive Species Identification Cards

Find ID cards for the most common marine invasive species monitored by the Marine Invader Monitoring and Information Collaborative (MIMIC).

To help detect and monitor marine invasive species, the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) funded the development of species identification cards for marine invaders in New England. Of the 23 species presented on the cards, 16 are already established in the region, and seven are considered potential invaders. See the list below for links to PDF copies of the cards, which were created by CZM and Salem Sound Coastwatch. You can also Download all 23 ID cards as a zip file (6 MB).

For a listing of these ID Cards that includes photos of the species, see the CZM Classic Site.
