Dr. Galil was at the Singapore Science Centre to give an interesting talk. She presented the outcome of constant monitoring of alien invasive species in the Mediterrarean and Adriatic seas. There was historical references and data from the time of the building of the Suez Canal and the advance/spread of the alien species was even mapped out.
To top it off, Prof Peter Ng gave an insight of similar happenings in Singapore, but with a lack of close monitoring of the situation.
