What are sea squirts and why are they a problem? Our current knowledge of the basic biology of invaders, of genetic fingerprinting methods to determine their points of origin, and of methods of control is minimal, though the problem itself is escalating especially in regions of expanding aquaculture (for review see Lambert, 2005). This symposium is the first to be devoted entirely to invasive ascidians (another term for sea squirts). It was organized to address these topics by bringing together growers and researchers in order to better understand the scope of the problem, review our current knowledge of the biology of invasive species, and hopefully to develop ways to prevent, slow, or control their spread.
