Dispersal corridors for marine non-indigenous species in Danish waters – analysing modelled settling areas and observed occurrences (39790)

Project Details


In the present study, we aim at identifying the potential dispersal corridors for selected marine non-indigenous species (NIS) in the Danish marine waters, subsequently examining whether these dispersal corridors coincide with areas where NIS observations are conducted during the national monitoring programme, NOVANA or where the main shipping routes are positioned. We specifically investigate whether dispersal corridors and simulated dispersal- and settling densities of NIS (estimated from our drift model simulations) can explain the observed presence or absence of 19 selected species recorded across the NOVANA stations.

The project is funded by the Danish Maritime Fond for the Danish Environmental Protection Agency.
