Short summary
The reproduction, survival, and transport of the comb jelly Mnemiopsis leidyi was studied with three models in the Scheldt estuaries and the southern North Sea. The results suggest that (a) the estuaries can retain an overwintering population and seed offshore populations; (b) M. leidyi can survive in the North Sea, and be transported between coastal inlets; and (c) M. leidyi cannot reproduce well in the North Sea, but this might change with global warming. The models need further improvement.
