From regional or thematic species database
Introduced species impact United States part of the North Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) Other impact - undefined or uncertain
The nonnative species influenced settlement, growth and survival of C. virginica in different ways. M.
coccopoma and P. viridis negatively influenced larval settlement, whereas M. charruana had no influence on
the total number of settled larvae. [details]

Introduced species impact Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) Loss of aquaculture/commercial/recreational harvest or gain (associated with a reduction in size and weight on farmed Perna perna mussels)  [details]

Introduced species population trend in North Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Francis Kerckhof considers this species to be established in the southern North Sea (Kerckhof 2006, personal communication).  [details]

Introduced species population trend in Gulf of Mexico (IHO Sea Area) : Perreault (2004) found additional non-recruiting and/or dead populations at this location. [details]
