Freshwater pests: Reed sweetgrass

"Freshwater plant and animal pests can have significant negative impacts on ecosystem health by reducing indigenous biodiversity through predation and competition, and destabilising aquatic habitats. Freshwater plant pests can cause economic losses through blocking water intakes for hydroelectricity generation, impeded drainage or irrigation. In addition, pests can affect the suitability for recreational activities. This dataset relates to the "Freshwater pests" measure on the Environmental Indicators, Te taiao Aotearoa website. "
