Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The origin of the Japanese skeleton shrimp Caprella mutica is East Asia, near Japan. The species was brought to Europe trough transport in ballast water of cargo ships or together with oysters imported by the farming industry. The first specimens of the Japanese skeleton shrimp in Belgium were found in 1998 on buoys in front of the coast of Zeebrugge. During the following years the species spread to the other ports along the Belgian coast. The species tolerates a wide gradient in temperature and salinity and might have a ecological influence by competing with indigenous species. [details]
