Solent Aliens, 19.30pm at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton
by Moira Maclean –
Within Southampton Water there is minimum of 50 Alien non-native species which have been introduced to this area by a number of different vectors. Some non-native species have been in this area for over a hundred years and many local people consider them to be native, other non-native species have been found more recently within the last few years. This talk will discuss the methods of introduction and highlight a few key alien species which can be found in the local area.
