Introduced species vector dispersal Maltese part of the Mediterranean Sea - Eastern Basin (Marine Region) Like elsewhere in the region (Galil, 2006; Katsanevakis et al., 2014), such maritime activity can be considered as the main vector in the introduction of alien species. This new record of alien species, follows others from areas that are characterized by intensive marine activity in Malta, such as the first Mediterranean records of Stegastes variabilis, Lutjanus fulviflamma and Abudefduf hoefleri (Vella et al., 2015a, b & 2016a).  [details]
