Invasive Species (1 x 30)


There's an invasion taking place in Atlantic Canadian waters. Each year an underwater army of non-native sea creatures is increasing their presence along our coastline. With names like sea squirt, oyster thief, and green crab they may not sound dangerous, but they're putting the entire marine ecosystem - and thousands of jobs - in jeopardy. Now, fishermen and scientists are working together to combat these destructive sub-sea invaders, but it's an up-hill battle.

Invasive Speciesis a half hour documentary that will explore several aquatic invaders that are wreaking havoc in the Maritimes – tunicates and the European green crab. The film will introduce viewers to several fishermen who are developing innovative ways to keep their industry alive and the biologists who are using scientific means to develop a plan of attack against these destructive invaders.
