The objective of the systematic review was to evaluate the existing literature base to assess the effectiveness of different non-native fish removal methods, and to identify the factors that influence the overall success rate of each type of method, in order to better inform management agencies who routinely have to decide when, where and how non-native fish eradication programs should be implemented. The review also aimed to identify knowledge gaps and suggest areas for new research.
