This paper discusses the osmotic capacity of the non-native Pontogammarus robustoides (G. O. Sars, 1894) in the context of the current occurrence of individuals of this species in the brackich waters of northern Poland, and its potential colonization of new localities. P. robustoides inhabits numerous water bodies with a wide range of salinities and is continuously expanding its range of distribution. During these studies, the osmoregulatory curve of P. robustoides was determined for the first time. This curve, ranging from 0 to 23 PSU, indicates the hyperosmotic nature of osmoregulation in this species and its considerable ability to adapt to different environmental salinities. The investigated parameters define the response of an organism to the salinity stress of its external environment.
