Title IPM for Boats: Integrated Pest Management for Hull Fouling in Southern California Coastal Marinas.
Publication Date Jun 2012
Media Count 28p

Abstract One goal of this report and the supporting research is to assist boat owners and boating facility managers in addressing invasive species policies when planning boating activities and fouling control programs. With this in mind and because non-native species can create problems, in this report we identify the origin of the various fouling species relative to the location of our research: south-central and southern California. A native (N) species is believed to have originated in the area where it is found, in this case California. A non-native (NN) species is believed to have originated somewhere other than the area being discussed, in this case outside of California. If the origin of a species is unknown, it is called cryptogenic (C). Some species have not been fully identified by scientists; we refer to them as unresolved (Unr) and no origin can be assigned.
