From other sources
Alien species The isopod Synidotea laticauda originally only occurred in shallow water aloung the west coast of the United States (San Francisco). It's an omnivorous species that mainly inhabits hard substrates such as buoys, pontoons and oyster beds. This isopod was first discoverd to occur in the Sea Scheldt river in 2005 when it was found near the Nuclear power plant of Doel (near Antwerp). The introduction into Belgian waters most likely occurred (like it did in France and Spain) through the ballast water of cargo ships. [details]
