Defend your coastline from invasive species!

Invasive species—sometimes called “alien invaders”—are organisms that are not native to the places where they live. They compete so successfully in new ecosystems that they displace native species, and disrupt important processes like food webs. In the ocean, alien invaders can cause serious damage to habitats where seafood is caught or harvested.

Enlist your family and help conquer these ocean invaders by including them in your meals!

Find out how you can help defend our coastlines and enjoy a delicious family meal here. Once your family’s tummies are full, visit the Mission:Explore Food—Sustainable Seafood page for a complete set of ocean-related missions!
