New Arctic Shipping Lanes Could Leave them Open to Invasive Species Spread
Experts are warning that the new Arctic shipping routes that have opened up as ice-ways continue to melt create new opportunities for invasive marine and insect life to spread further north.

A. Whitman Miller and Gregory M. Ruiz of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center have recently issued a warning to their fellow scientists that the increasing popularity of two new Arctic shipping routes for commercial trade will significantly raise the likelihood that new invasive species will make their way into harbors they were never able to reach prior to 2009.

The arctic routes are consistently cold. As long as a species can survive cold temperatures of a "short" trip across the northern hemisphere, they will find themselves in unexplored and vulnerable waters in no time.

One such idea is that of floating gardens, which the Regional Centre for Development Cooperation (RCDC) came up with to tackle the water hyacinth issue.
