Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The killer shrimp Dikerogrammarus villosus original distribution was in the Ponto-Caspian region. After the opening of the canal between Danube and the Rhine in 1992 the species found its way to Western Europe. This killer shrimp distributed itself both actively and passively - via ships - through the European water-network and in 1997 the shrimp was found in the Belgian Albert canal. Since then, the species has advanced to brackish and freshwater in both East and West Flanders. Quickly the species became notorious as an aggressive omnivore that feeds on other shrimps. Together with its high adaptability and short generation time, this causes the killer shrimp to exclude other shrimps, affecting local food webs and biodiversity. These characteristics make of the killer shrimp a successful exotic invasive species. [details]
