Guidelines for the control of seaweed introductions associated to oyster transfers in aquaculture

Oyster transfer is an important vector for marine macrophytes introductions.- Duration of transfer (emersion) has no effect on the survival of macrophyte propagules.
- Immersion in hot-seawater or in brine are effective methods to avoid such introduction or/and dispersal of marine macrophytes.
