Research Show Invasive Species Cost the Great Lakes Millions: New Paper Assigns Dollar Figure to Effects of Shipborne Invaders (Mar 29, 2012)
University of Notre Dame.
Researchers assigns a dollar figure on the cost to the Great Lakes from invasive species that originate in the ballast water of ocean-going vessels. For the U.S.waters, median damages aggregated across multiple ecosystem services were $138 million per year, and there is a 5% chance that for sportfishing alone losses exceeded $800 million annually. For information, see the journal article Ship-borne Nonindigenous Species Diminish Great Lakes Ecosystem Services.
