Scope of assessment: for the control of 11 invasive freshwater species.

Assessed: American bullfrog and Procambarus spp. crayfish 2015; all other species 2016.

Effectiveness measure is the median% score for effectiveness.

Certainty measure is the median% certainty of evidence for effectiveness, determined by the quantity and quality of the evidence in the synopsis.

Harm measure is the median% score for negative side-effects to non-target native species. This was not assessed for some species in this chapter.

Potential impacts on non-target species should be considered carefully before implementing any control action.
