New Ballast Treatment Research Center
The GLRC's Stephanie Hemphill writes:
"Foreign, invasive species often get into US waters by hitching a ride in the ballast water of ocean going ships. Now, a new research center will work to stop the spread of these invasive species. The research center hopes to develop new treatment systems aimed at catching the critters before they get out."Read or listen to NEW RESEARCH CENTER FOR BALLAST TREATMENT by GLRC Environment Report
