Invasive non-native flora and fauna species identified in marine ecosystems

Key finding

Queensland remains largely free of invasive non-native marine flora and fauna species (marine pests), despite a high possibility of introduction through international shipping activity.

Asian green mussels have been detected on vessels on a number of occasions however rapid response to the detections mean no populations are known to have established.
