Best Practice Guidelines for Removal of Northern Pacific Seastars (Asterias Amurensis) in Port Phillip Bay

Join the Community Rapid Response Team and Earthcare St Kilda to help us remove Northern Pacific Seastars (NPS) from Seaford Pier. Northern Pacific seastars (NPS) are a nationally significant marine pest and a major threat to the marine ecosystems of Port Phillip Bay. Since 2019, several aggregations of NPS have appeared in different locations. Recently an aggregation of juvenile Northern Pacific Seastars has been noticed at Seaford Beach and we need your help to control the numbers of this marine pest at this site. No snorkelling will be required, the collection will be carried out in shallow water.
