From regional or thematic species database
Introduced species abundance in Persian Gulf (IHO Sea Area) : About 200 shrimp were transplanted into the Persian Gulf [details]

Introduced species abundance in Baltic Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Before the year 2000, P. elegans was limited to the southern Baltic Sea, and usually to salinities above 7 PSU. After the year 2000, this shrimp became abundant in the central and eastern Baltic (Grabowski 2006). [details]

Introduced species abundance in Finland (Nation) : Common to dominant [details]

Introduced species impact in Baltic Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Outcompetes native species for resources and/or space [details]

Introduced species impact in Baltic Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Outcompetes native species for resources and/or space [details]

Introduced species population trend in Persian Gulf (IHO Sea Area) : They are presumed to still be established here.  [details]

Introduced species population trend in Gulf of Finland (IHO Sea Area) : This shrimp is now established and reproducing in this region (Katajisto et al. 2013).  [details]

Introduced species remark In Baltic Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Palaemon elegans has largely replaced the native P. adspersus and Palaemonetes varians at many locations in the southeastern Baltic. However, the mechanism of competition is unclear (Grabowski 2006). [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in Gulf of Finland (IHO Sea Area) : Ships: accidental with ballast water, sea water systems, live wells or other deck basins
Ballast water seems the most likely vector for the introduction of P. elegans to the eastern Baltic (Reuschel et al. 2010). [details]
