March 2020 issue of Management of Biological Invasions is now online!

This first 2020 issue presents a high variety of management options ranging from steam exposure and disinfectants to fish slams!

 Artisanal fishing in the Amazon is at risk as dam constructions facilitate the spread of pirarucu Araipama gigas into areas where they are non-native.

 It’s a fish slam! The US Geological Survey benefits from expert bioblitzes around Florida that have contributed more than 600 records to the Nonindigenous Aquatic Species database.

 The spread of two invasive mosquitoes Aedes albopictus and Culex quinquefasciatus might be controlled with steam treatments and chemical disinfectants that target mosquito eggs and larvae.

 Aquatic disinfectants were tested on five invasive macrophytes in Northern Ireland with multiple applications, longer submergence times, and combined treatments recommended to control spread.

 Researchers compared 12 trap designs for the invasive red swamp crayfish Procambarus clarkii and found that mesh traps are most effective.

 Habitat suitability studies for dreissenid mussels tell us more about the invasion risk in Texas: invasion risk for quagga mussel was low, but there are suitable habitats for zebra mussel.

 “Thinkshops” with stakeholders and online surveys provide a better understanding of public perceptions of Asian carp introduction and management responses.

 Ultimate survivors! Can the invasive snail Potamopyrgus antipodarum spread upstream via the digestive tract of benthivorous riverine fish?

 A contaminant legacy of an island eradication attempt: brodifacoum to control rat populations on the Wake Atoll has also been detected in fish found in highly treated ponds.

 Snakes alive! But not when the oral toxicant acetaminophen was applied to baited mice fed to the invasive Californian kingsnake on Gran Canaria, Spain.
