The guide, developed within the LIFE INVASAQUA project, was first presented to the VIII Congress of the Iberian Society of Ichthyology (SIBIC).
LIFE INVASAQUA project aims to contribute to reducing the harmful impacts of IAS on biodiversity by increasing awareness of the public, training in involved sectors and the creation of means to promote early warning and rapid response systems on freshwater ecosystems and estuaries in the Iberian Peninsula.
The guide includes texts, photographs and icons facilitating species identification. It also includes dedicated sections to the public on citizen actions and where to address their doubts, involving them in the monitoring and management of IAS.
The guide, already available to download in Spanish, will be also published in Portuguese and English.
