Micropogonias undulatus (L.), another exotic arrival in European waters
Stevens, M.; Rappé, G.; Maes, J.; Van Asten, B.; Ollevier, F.P. (2004). Micropogonias undulatus (L.), another exotic arrival in European waters. J. Fish Biol. 64(4): 1143-1146. dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1095-8649.2004.00369.x
Two living specimens of the Atlantic croaker Micropogonias undulatus have been caught during recent years in Belgian waters ((Southern Bight of the North Sea): one in August 1998 as a by-catch of the commercial shrimp fishery in coastal waters, another in October 2001 on a tidal flat in the brackish part of the Scheldt Estuary. These represent the first records of this north-west Atlantic species in European waters, and their occurrence is likely to be due to transportation in ship ballast water.
