The question was:
Does anyone know of any examples or papers which demonstrate an
introduction of exotic marine animals as a result of release to the near by
sea or lake after keeping the exotic animal as a pet??
Many Thanks, David.
One of the answers is:
The closest I can get to an introduction of a marine organism used as a pet
is the famous Caulerpa taxifolia released from an aquarium into the waters
of southern France.
