From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The natural area of distribution of Codium fragile fragile is the Pacific region,near Japan. This green algae typically occurs in sheltered areas like harbours, bays, and tidal pools. The species reached Europe by attaching itself on ship hulls, and through transport with shellfish. It was first observed in Belgium in 1939 in the Ostend Sluice dock. It competes with indigenous algae, and frequently forms dense packages on existing shellfish banks. After a decline in in 2003, its abundance in the Ostend Sluice dock increased again since 2006 . [details]
