Human Impacts on Biodiversity Loss
THE INTERESTED PARTIES.
In the case of an invasive species problem, stakeholders
Important role in the total set of problem because once an ecosystem is invaded the resistance decreases making it more susceptible to other invaders.
A stakeholder is someone who is directly affected by the ecological problem. There are numerous stakeholders regarding the mussel invasion. The number of stakeholders has only grown in recent years. These actors include lake residents, recreational industry, government organizations, commercial water industries, ecological scientists ...
Globalization has been occurring for centuries. This means that cargo ships have been used to transport goods around the world. Non-native species, such as zebra and quagga mussels, can be introduced into a country through ships. However, the likelihood that
Species are established and become pests are 1/1000.
Eurasian mussels accounted for 001% after being introduced through the ballast water tanks of cargo ships in the late 1980s.
However, there are other methods of transporting the mussels other than through large vessels. Humans are also known for moving around in their own country. This would mean that recreational craft can go from one river to another often with zebra mussels, and therefore can settle in a new river or reservoir through this mode of dispersion.
Adult mussels adhere to the outside of the hull or aquatic macrophytes that are entangled in the trailer or boat exterior and live larvae in bilges, bait buckets and refrigeration systems.
The navigators surveyed by TECNOYMAR SOLUCIONES provided information on where they had previously navigated. Of all surfers surveyed, 2.1% reported that they had used several places to navigate during the two-week survey period. Consequently, boaters can transport mussels to other inland water bodies if they are not careful.
Mussels often have a direct impact on industries, leading to extensive damage. Mussels can clog water intake structures, such as pipes and reducing pumping capacities for water and energy treatment plants.
This led to the use of chlorine to control problems. Although chlorine itself does not normally cause environmental damage, dioxins, which are chemicals produced as by-products in zebra mussel removal processes, contaminate water and fish. This is a bio-enlargement process; Toxins accumulate and move through the food chain. Dioxins are not very soluble in water, so it accumulates in the bottoms with a half-life of more than 500 days. Carcinogens such as dioxin have been shown to increase the likelihood of infertility within aquatic organisms The introduction of carcinogens and dioxins into water will affect human health, especially workers exposed to Chlorine for an extended period of time
