South American sea squirt in Dutch Oosterschelde estuary


This video is about the pleated sea squirt, Styela plicata.

In the spring of 2008, the sea squirt species Corella eumyota (orange-tipped sea squirt) was found for the first time in the Netherlands. That was in the harbour of Burghsluis, at the Oosterschelde estuary.

In 2014 and 2015, it was also found at another Oosterschelde spot, Westbout.

So, this originally South American species seems to be spreading, but slowly.

  1. I would imagine if a meta study was done to see the movement of many species this movement would be indication of many phenomena, including response to over fishing, global warming, to ocean acidification.
