Migration

Alien species

Bache’s knotsklokje Nemopsis bachei kwam oorspronkelijk enkel voor langs de Atlantische kust van Noord-Amerika. Door de vasthechting van de poliepjes op scheepsrompen zou deze kwallensoort in de 19e eeuw tot in Europa geraakt zijn. Het feit dat Bache’s knotsklokje in de voortplantingscyclus een (tijdelijk) kwalstadium heeft, liet toe dat de soort zich snel lokaal verder kon verspreiden. De eerste waarnemingen van het kwalstadium van Bache’s knotsklokje langs de Belgische kust dateren uit 1996, in de haven van Zeebrugge.

Alien species

The hydroid Nemopsis bachei occurred naturally only along the Atlantic coast of North America. By attaching their polyps to hulls of ships; the species might have reached Europe in the 19th century. The jellyfish stage in the hydroids reproductive cycle allows it to spread rapidly. The species was first reported along the Belgian coast in 1996 in the port of Zeebrugge.
