From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The swim-bladder nematode Anguillicoloides crassus lives as a parasite in the swim-bladder of the European eel (Anguilla anguilla). This small round worm (nematode) originates from Southeast Asia. In the 1980's the nematode reached Europe via infected eels imported for consumption. Uncontrolled restocking of eels allowed for a further spread of the swim-bladder nematode. The first Belgian observations date from 1985. Since then, the parasite is very common in both wild eels and eel farms. Infected eels don't grow well and are overall less fit. The swim-bladder nematode nematode is considered to be a possible reason for the decline in eel stocks. [details]
