Migration

Alien species

Van oorsprong komt de estuariene poliepvlo Incisocalliope aestuarius voor in riviermondingen langs de Amerikaanse Atlantische kust. Via schepen, als aanhechting op de romp of in het ballastwater, werd deze soort geïntroduceerd in Europa. De eerste waarneming in België vond plaats in de Zeeschelde in oktober 1996. Deze vlokreeft komt enkel voor in het brakke water van estuaria. Opmerkelijk is dat de soort in de Westerschelde bijna uitsluitend voorkomt in associatie met hydroïdpoliepjes, een habitat die nauwelijks door inheemse vlokreeften wordt benut.

Alien species

The original distribution area of the amphipod Incisocalliope aestuarius stretches along the river mouths of the American east coast. The species reached Europe by ship transportation (on the ship’s hull or in the ballast water). It was first discovered in the Belgian Sea Scheldt in oktober 1996, but was shown present in the Western Scheldt since 1991. The fact that this amphipod only occurs in brackish water and not in open sea, limits its expansion to river mouths. It is remarkable that in Belgian regions this species occurs in association with hydroid polyps, a habitat seldom or never occupied by indigenous amphipods.
