Introduced species remark In Slovenian part of the Adriatic Sea (Marine Region) : First recorded in Venetian lagoons in 1934 (Mizzan, 1999 in Lipej et al. 2012) and in the Secovlje Salina in 1994 (Lipej et al. 2009 in Lipej et al. 2012). Established and common in coastal wetlands esp. Skocjan Inlet where it forms organogenic formations [details]

Introduced species remark Argentinean part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) Mesocosms experiments showed that nutrient supply increased the Chla concentration, but when reefs were added, the Chla decreased. Thus, nutrients increased the phytoplankton biomass but grazing by the reefs counteracted these increments. This indicates that an invader such as F. enigmaticus mightmodulate an anthropogenic impact via suspension feeding, and therefore its role in mitigate the consequences of eutrophication may be highly important. [details]
