dc.description.abstractIt has been 20 years since the foundation of a dedicated International Conference on Marine Bioinvasions in 1999 (ICMB-I, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, USA). Amongst the most prominent driving factors behind this were the invasion of the Great Lakes by the zebra mussel Dreissena polymorpha Pallas, 1771 in the 1980s and reports of an average of one new species invading San Francisco Bay every 14 weeks between 1961 to 1995 (Cohen and Carlton 1998). At this time, scientists were becoming well aware of the growing number of introductions worldwide and their impacts on marine communities (Minchin 1996; Reise et al. 1998; Hewitt et al. 1999; Sliwa et al. 2009). Ascidians, commonly known as sea squirts, were quickly flagged as one of the most notorious and diverse group of fouling species being transported and introduced around the world (Shenkar and Swalla 2011). Indeed, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, invasive ascidians were identified as important players causing significant ecological and economic impacts to marine systems (Coles et al. 2002; Lambert 2002). As the twenty-first century enters its third decade, invasive ascidians continue to affect ecosystems (Carman et al. 2011; Shenkar 2012; Zhan et al. 2015), create problems for aquaculture (Muñoz and McDonald 2014; McKenzie et al. 2017), and frequently dominate coastal fouling communities (López-Legentil et al. 2015).en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThe ICMB-X was supported by CONICET, MINCyT, SCTeIP Chubut, Consejo Federal de Inversiones, Biodiversity Heritage Library, Administración Portuaria de Puerto Madryn (APPM), Office of Naval Research Global, Aluar Aluminio Argentino, Madryn Bureau, Ente Mixto Puerto Madryn, Municipalidad de Puerto Madryn, FAO-GEF-SAyDS. Special acknowledgement to Yagui (Instagram: @yaguiart) for allowing the use of his artistic paintings on the background of the ICMB-X logo in banners, conference program, abstract book, reports, social media, etc. Ale Bortolus designed the logo for the Society for the Study of Marine Bioinvasions. The 6th IISSC was supported by sponsors Woods Hole Sea Grant and Oak Bluffs Shellfish Department and steering committee members Dr. Stephan Bullard, Dr. Jim Carlton, Dr. Phil Colarusso, Dr. Jeff Davidson, Dr. Cynthia McKenzie, Dr. Judith Pederson, and Dr. Page Valentine. Special gratitude is extended to Ellen Bailey who organized all IISSC conferences. Thank you too to Dr. Vadim Panov for his continued support in publishing papers from the conferences.en_US
