SPOTLIGHT ON: SeaWeb as a learning resource

Students, teachers and seafarers wishing to look beyond the AUSMEPA curriculum units on Marine Pests and Threats and Marine Stormwater Pollution for further information may find SeaWeb an excellent resource.

Although US based, SeaWeb are exclusively dedicated to communicating workable, science-based solutions to ocean threats. These threats are largely common throughout the entire marine environment.

They have five newsletters and of note is the Marine Science Review, providing citations and abstracts from influential marine science research.

An extract from the Marine Science Review in July 2013 (below) focuses on Introduced Species with research information about pollution from ship ballast and hulls.
