From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The Australian tubeworm Ficopomatus enigmaticus is a tube building polychaete worm with a presumable origin in the Southern Hemisphere. The tubeworm needs a hard substrate to attach to. High densities of the Australian tubeworm can form reef like structures reaching dimensions of 4 meters in width and more than 2 meters in height.The species would have reached Belgian regions through attachment on ship’s hulls, via ballast water or together with the transportation of molluscs. The Australian tubeworm was observed for the first time in Belgium in 1950 at the Ostend harbour, on the hull of a marine research vessel. Many see these worms as a pest because they form reefs on ships and harbour infrastructures. However along the Belgian coast Australian tubeworm reefs are yet to appear… [details]
