Introduced species remark In Uruguayan part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) : There was a massive irruption of this species in 2003 and periodic irruptions since then with a peak in 2005. Estimated to be spreading south at around 183-195 km year-1.  [details]

Introduced species remark In Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) : There was a massive irruption of this species in 2002 covering 2 km of the intertidal zone and it has been present every summer since then. Estimated to be spreading south at around 183-195 km year-1.  [details]

Introduced species remark In Brazilian part of the South Atlantic Ocean (Marine Region) : The species has appeared in 4 Brazilian states since 1997 (Gordon et al. 2006 in Lopez Gappa et al. 2010). [details]

Introduced species remark In New Zealand (Nation) : In New Zealand and South America, this species can clog fishing nets and disturb the aesthetic of recreational beaches when it washes up in large, smelly masses. Large masses of M. tubigerum were reportedly clogging trawl nets used for shrimp-fishing in Brazil and flounder-fishing in New Zealand (Gordon et al. 2006; Lopez Gappa et al. 2010). [details]
