Despite the severe damage these species are causing, there is little in the way of a coordinated effort to reduce their impact and spread across Europe.Over recent years a number of projects have sought to improve the management of INS across the Two Seas region, by bringing together research institutes, universities, local government, land managers, businesses and other relevant stakeholders to form cross-border partnerships. RINSE (Reducing the Impact of Non-native Species In Europe) focussed primarily on INS withinfreshwater and terrestrial habitats.
