From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species Gammarus tigrinus is a species which naturally occurs in North America. It is thought the species was mainly introduced in Europe via transportation in the ballast water of ships, as was the case in England in 1931. This species was also imported intentionally as fish food, for instance in Germany 1957. In 1991 the species was first reported in Belgium. It is possible that the introduction in Belgium occurred through natural expansion via the river Meuse or by accident by replacing fish stocks from The Netherlands into Belgium waters. It is a species that is found in fresh to brackish waters. [details]
