alien species The Japanese sargasso weed or strangleweed Sargassum (Bactrophycus) muticum naturally thrives along the coasts of Japan, Russia, Korea, and China. This brown alga was imported in Europe together with Japanese oysters (either directly from Asia or with infected Canadian oyster breed). Strangleweed has been washing ashore along the Belgian coast regularly since the seventies. The first specimens - attached to hard substrate - were discovered in the harbor of Zeebrugge, in 1999. In areas where strangleweed has successfully invaded, it outcompetes the indigenous species by its fast growth. This is however not the case in Belgium. Floating packages of this seaweed however contribute to a rich community of marine organisms that use it as a food source, shelter, foraging area or attachment surface.  [details]
