Alien Invaders in Estuaries: A guide to Invasive Non Native species

To learn more about how you can help stop the spread of invasive species in our estuaries please take a look at this leaflet, which has been developed for estuaries in France, The Netherlands, Belgium and the UK by the European project 'SE-FINS'.

Not all the species featured here are currently found in Essex estuaries, but this guide contains useful information on how to recognise invasive species and prevent them from spreading.
