The most effective method of avoiding species introduction is to limit the geographic and ecologic range of each robot.

Robots dedicated to specific ecosystems can eliminate the possibility of invasive transport.

Users can minimize the amount of transport between ecosystems by planning their expeditions such that all dives in a specific site are completed contiguously, with the fewest possible transitions between geographically or biologically distinct regions.

When robots must be carried internationally, users should declare their ROVs at customs checkpoints and provide an opportunity for host nations to implement their own disinfectant procedures.
