The carpet sea squirt (Didemnum vexillum) is an invasive non-native species of colonial sea squirt that has recently been found in England, Ireland, Wales and at one location in the Clyde, on the west coast of Scotland. The potential ecological and economic impacts of this species are significant. This project involved a series of rapid assessment surveys of marinas and harbours thought to be most likely at risk from establishment in Scotland.
