March 17, 2020 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

smithsonian environmental research centerInvasive species have been crossing to new shores in the hulls of ships, unseen, for centuries. But in the late 20th century, scientists and managers began discovering more of them inside the ballast water ships carry for balance. In this talk, SERC marine biologist Greg Ruiz will highlight some of the latest efforts to track and clean up ships’ ballast water and prevent future invasions.

The talk will be held in the Schmidt Conference Center. Light refreshments at 6:30 p.m.
