New job opportunities from IAS control? – New York is looking for professional scuba divers for removing IAS


Thursday, 27 April 2017

The adverse effects that invasive alien species (IAS) can have on biodiversity, economy and human health requires concerted actions for preventing and mitigating the impact of these species. Nowadays, a wide spectrum of management or control actions has been developed worldwide, supported by regional, national and international policies.

The control of IAS has led to the development of new niches in the field of environmental services, creating new business and job opportunities. E.g.: A New York company is looking for professional SCUBA divers for hand-harvest of aquatic invasive species.
