Abstract

The invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi was first recorded in the Kiel Bight (western Baltic Sea) on 17 October 2006 during a regular weekly sampling program. The M. leidyi abundance gradually increased from 29.5±12.7 ind.m-3 in mid-October to 92.3±22.4 ind.m-3 in late November 2006. The occurrence of M. leidyi in the Baltic Sea is of great concern as this invader has caused negative impacts in the southern seas of Europe.
