The green anemone Diadumene lineata is an anemone (Anthozoa) originally only found in the northwestern part of the Pacific Ocean and around Japan. Transport by attachment to ship hulls or through aquaculture with oysters would have brought this anemone to Europe by the end of the 19th century. The green anemone was reported for the first time in Belgium in 1998, in the Ostend Sluice dock. The species is able to deal well with changing environmental factors, and has the ability to reproduce very quickly.
