Abstract

The eastern Pacific benthic foraminifer Nonionella stella Cushman & Moyer, 1930 was recorded for the first
time in the Skagerrak (North Sea) and its fjords. In this short note we evaluate its migration, considering both dispersal by
propagules and ship ballast tanks. We suggest that the predominantly southward surface currents along the western European
seaboard and Morocco would impede a wide-range dispersal of N. stella propagules and hypothesize transportation by ship
ballast tanks as the possible vector of N. stella immigration into northern European seas.
