Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The locations of major problem areas for invasive species infestations or occurrence of exotic species in the marine
environment. The impacted areas are concurrent with the areas subjected to the worst pollution, the most intensive
fisheries and bottom trawling, and major shipping routes. The areas in the figure have been highlighted based on an overview of literature, and the delineation of the areas are approximate.
