Taxonomic Group: Crustaceans-Amphipods


Aoroides secunda is a small marine tube-dwelling amphipod. It is native to the Northwest Pacific from Japan to Russia. Introduced populations are known from California and Oregon. It is found associated with other benthic species on rocky coasts, in algal beds, and within fouling communities on man-made structures. No impacts have been reported from introduced locations. Ballast water and hull-fouling are likely vectors for this species.
