Abstract
    Examination of mud from crevices beneath Pacific oysters Crassostrea gigas (Thunberg, 1793) in The Netherlands revealed the presence of the Pacific amphipod Monocorophium uenoi (Stephensen, 1932), which was not recorded previously from the Atlantic. The most likely introduction vector to The Netherlands was import of shellfish. The only location where the amphipod was found was the center of shellfish trade, Yerseke.
