Invasive isopods in the Salish Sea

2015-01-29

A recent publication on the global introduction of the Asian isopod Ianiropsis serricaudis was a by-product of a study we funded to evaluate the impact of invasive tunicates in the Salish Sea (Cordell et al., 2012). The publication shows that this invasive isopod is often associated with other invasive species and is well-established in communities of fouling organisms throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
