This review analyzes the problem of the distribution of some species with vessels into different areas of the World Ocean. Some major concepts and terminology related to acclimation of hydrobionts are specified. It is shown that due to long-term observations, Peter the Great Bay is now one of the most studied areas in terms of introduced fouling organisms. New data are presented about the introduction of 16 species, which are now in different stages of acclimation, into Peter the Great Bay and the northwestern Sea of Japan.
