The National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research Ltd (NIWA) and the Ministry for Primary Industries undertake a range of research projects with our national and international colleagues to understand the risks to New Zealand from non-native marine species and to support the development of policy and management to minimize their impacts. These include investigations into how non-native marine species reach New Zealand and are spread, their potential ecological, social and economic consequences and practical measures to support eradication and control.
