North America works to halt invasive species
Date:4/23/2009

he National Invasive Species Council. He added, "I truly believe that, if given a chance, regional international organizations such as the CEC can provide a positive example of what can be done not only for the three countries in North America but for the global community as a whole."

The guidelines will be used as a tool for North American resource managers to assess the risk of introducing nonnative species into a natural ecosystem. While not all invasive species cause damage and some are even beneficial, the risk analysis must be meticulous to assess the mechanisms of species establishment and dispersal, as well as the potential impacts they may have once they are released into natural ecosystems.

The control and eventual eradication of invasive fish populations, once established, is practically impossible. The governments of the region's three countries are likewise committed to building cross-border capacities to create prevention and awareness programs throughout North America.
