From other sources
Alien species The amphipod Melita nitida was originally only found on the east and west coast of North-America. The species was first recorded in Europe (which it reached through transportation on ship’s hulls or in ballast water), in the Seascheldt in 1996. Remarkably, this species often occurs underneath Japanese oysters Crassostrea gigas and rocks: places that are less inhabited by indigenous amphipods. [details]
