The COMPLETE project has successfully tackled several knowledge gaps regarding introduction and spread of non-indigenous and potential invasive species by shipping. Since 2017 various project activities focused, in co-operation with different stakeholder groups, on identification and development of management, monitoring, and early warning options, methods, and tools for minimizing the introduction risk via ballast water and biofouling.
