Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species vector dispersal in United States (Nation) : Fisheries: accidental with deliberate translocations of fish or shellfish
Edwards (1976) suggests that a possible vector for this hydrozoan was shellfish research by the US Fisheries Commission, which included rearing and stocking of Pacific Clams (Protothaca staminea), or more likely, oysters from Europe, possibly including the 'Portuguese' Oyster (Crassostrea angulata), with which the polyp could have been carried from Asia. Ballast water or hull fouling is less likely, as they could not account for the highly localized distribution on the East Coast. [details]
