From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorEcology Rapana venosa is an invasive species in the North Sea. It is native to the Sea of Japan. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorHuman impact The possible effects of R. venosa in the North Sea remain uncertain, but if established, this invasive species could become a severe competitor for the native whelk Buccinum undatum. As R. venosa is known as predator on bivalves, an impact on local aquaculture activities (on e.g. blue mussels and oysters) is also possible. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorIntroduction Both shipping activities and natural dispersion from the nearest population in France (Quiberon, Brittany) are possible modes of introduction of R. venosa to the Dutch part of the North Sea and the Southern North Sea. [details]
