Introduced species abundance in Brazil (Nation) : Two specimens of Scylla serrata were collected in Brazil, one in Santos, Sao Paulo State in 1983 (Melo 1983, cited by Tavares 2011), and one on Sepetiba Bay, Rio de Janeiro, in 2011. These occurrences could be either releases of live seafood or ballast water introductions (Tavares and Medonca 2011). [details]
