Ballast Water Invasive Species: The Science of Environmental Regulations Presented by Dr. Mario Tamburri
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Invasive species introductions, through the release of ship’s ballast water, have enormous ecological and economic impacts on coastal waters around the world, including the Chesapeake Bay. While national and international ballast water discharge regulations have been established to minimize risks, rigorous implementation of these rules is needed if we are to meet their goals. Dr. Tamburri will discuss how CBL research is addressing the issue of ballast water invasive species and the successful implementation of complex environmental regulations.
