Uittreksel

We present an overview of data collected by partners in the Interreg IVa project "MEMO". Gelatinous zooplankton was sampled using various gear types in the Eastern English Channel, Southern North Sea and adjacent estuaries and harbours.
Mnemiopsis was never encountered along the UK coasts. The highest densities were observed in late summer/autumn in estuareis and ports. In winter, Mnemiopsis was observed in low densities offshore as well as in estuaries.
The seasonal pattern of M. leidyi was similar to that in other invaded temperate areas. Peak densieties differed by several orders of magnitude between nearby coastal areas.
