Default OH- Invasive Species in Ohio: Pathways, Policies, and Costs

Invasive Species in Ohio: Pathways, Policies, and Costs

Invasive Species in Ohio: Pathways, Policies, and Costs | Union of Concerned Scientists
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Invasive species do not recognize political boundaries, therefore UCS calls for strong federal action to prevent the introduction and spread of invasive species. Dramatically different federal policies are essential. Federal law should require that ships treat their ballast water before it is discharged - in order to eliminate the live organisms that are carried by accident. Industries that import live plants and animals - like nurseries and pet sellers - should not distribute live organisms before they are assessed for invasiveness.

Calling for strong federal action and actually getting it are two different stories. There are alot of people who have been screaming for whitelists.
