Introduced species impact in Brazil (Nation) : Outcompetes native species for resources and/or space [details]

Introduced species remark In Brazil (Nation) : A number of impacts have been studied in Brazilian waters, including: competition and overgrowth of native corals (Creed 2006; Silva et al. 2011); how settlement affects food webs by replacing hermatypic corals (containing symbiotic algae, relying partly on photosynthesis for nutrition) with corals which are exclusively carnivorous (Silva et al. 2011); and the inhibition of feeding by coral reef fishes (Lages et al. 2011). [details]

Introduced species remark In Gulf of Mexico (IHO Sea Area) : In US waters, it has largely been confined to artificial substrates such as oil platforms, shipwrecks, and artificial reefs, but its spread to coral reefs is a concern, particularly in the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary in the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico. This species may compete with and overgrow native corals, potentially affecting food webs and altering the feeding habits of reef fish. [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in Caribbean Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Hull fouling has probably been the major vector of transport between distant ocean regions, but the larvae can remain competent for 100 days, permitting regional dispersal by currents (Fenner 2001). Disposal by aquarists is a potential vector for future invasions (Shearer 2011). [details]
