Mankind has been moving fish around for millennia, sometimes on purpose, and just as often, not. Some of these introduced species have become super-abundant, upsetting ecosystem balance, earning them the distinction of being considered invasive. Increasing effort is now being applied to both understand the causes of this phenomenon and its consequences, and then to control particular invasive species. This Special Edition has a relatively broad scope, and solicits articles that address how and why fish species have become invasive, their consequences, and how some species are presently controlled (or not) and why. Examples of successful control that are of broad significance to multiple situations and species are especially encouraged. Examples are also sought from both freshwater and marine systems. Theoretical manuscripts are welcomed, as well as papers that describe successful ongoing management approaches that might have not been described in peer-review literature before.
