Abstract
A total of 532 references on the biological control of aquatic nuisances were reviewed. Three major control approaches exist. Grazing and predation have been the most frequently utilized techniques, with emphasis on macrophyte control by fish and insects. The use of pathogens is potentially effective, with most promise in macrophyte control. Biomanipulation, the exploitation of the interrelationships among plants and their environment is a most promising technique for eutrophic systems. This approach includes increasing algal grazers while controlling zooplanktivores and exploiting the competitive and growth limiting reactions among various species. The importance of using host-specific organisms to prevent damage to desirable components of the ecosystem is emphasized.
