Fucus evanescens is recorded for the first time in Kiel Bight (western Baltic). It is now common at several sites in the lower zone of F. vesiculosus. Its arrival to the area and especially its increase in abundance seem to be recent. Epiphyte load in late spring was significantly higher on F. vesiculosus (20%) than on F. evanescens (5%). The immigration of F. evanescens from Danish waters may be connected to the decline in abundance of F. vesiculosus and F. serratus in the western Baltic.
