Background information and definitions
Applying UV radiation to an invaded waterbody may offer a tool for localised eradication or population reduction of gobies, provided potentially negative effects on native species are carefully managed. A combined laboratory and field study in Lake Tahoe, USA indicated that UV levels in parts of the lake are intense enough to kill all largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides larvae (Tucker et al. 2012).
