Growth inhibition of native L. saxatilis (Olivi) by introduced L. littorea (L.). from one location to another? Thus, its physiology makes it unusually capable of being transported and established outside its native range, whether in rock ballast on ships that took ~ 21-60 days to reach Pictou in the nineteenth century (Brawley et al., 2009) or, presently, as a hitchhiker as other marine species are transported for aquaculture, food, or fishing bait from the Atlantic to the Pacific. L. littorea occurs abundantly in intertidal and shallow subtidal habitats from the White Sea (Russia) to southern Portugal in the eastern Atlantic; this is its native range (Hawkins et al., 1992; Reid, 1996; Barroso et al., 2007). ], 65(5):746-752. http://icesjms.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/abstract/65/5/746.

H. Gelpke, Pyrmonti. Is Littorina littorea introduced or indigenous? The species is found at considerable depth (e.g., Huntsman, 1918 (36 m, Gulf of St Lawrence); Fretter and Graham, 1980 (60 m, northern Britain)), but predation limits its abundance subtidally (Pettitt, 1975; Perez et al., 2009). In its invasive range in the Atlantic, L. littorea is most similar to L. saxatilis, but is easily distinguished when mature by its larger size and the less pronounced ridges (roughness) of the L. littorea shell compared to L. saxatilis.

As an invasive species in the northwestern Atlantic, L. littorea occurs from Red Bay, Labrador, to Lewes, Delaware (Reid, 1996; Brawley et al., 2009), where it is abundant on rocky shores, cobbled beaches, salt marshes, and in shallow subtidal areas (Stephenson and Stephenson, 1954; Vadas and Elner, 1992). L. obtusata is much more affected by C. maenas predation than L. littorea in the Gulf of Maine and Bay of Fundy, which Edgell and Rochette (2008) suggested was due to the prior evolution of predator-resistance by L. littorea in Europe, before its introduction to North America. 3.
