bloqueador biológico


Explanation:
The most feared action of the "Asian Clam" or "Zebra Clam" is that of obstruction of water channels and intakes, also exhausts of boat and ship hulls. It has the ability to survive and be transported in the ballast of ships and adapt to new waters. Since it does not have any predators in the new continent, it multiplies rapidly and becomes a "fouler" (bloquer)
