Background information and definitions
Biocides are chemical substances or microorganisms used with the intention of controlling an invasive or problematic species. Using biocides or other chemicals, such as chemical inhibitors, to reduce or control invasive or problematic species may lower the risk they pose to marine and freshwater mammals. However, some biocides are toxic and may contaminate marine and freshwater environments.
