    Notes sur l'espèce pour cette localité:
    Very recently this species has been recorded in Morocco (van Bruggen 1987), on the Ivory Coast (de Winter 1988, Zhong et al. 1990, in Raut & Barker 2002) and in Ghana (Monnney 1994, in Raut & Barker 2002). A fulica became the dominant achatinid shortly after its introduction to Ghana and the Ivory Coast (Raut and Barker 2002).
    Notes sur la gestion de l'espèce dans cette localité:
    Since the local people do not eat A. fulica this alien species goes unchecked (Raut & Barker 2002).

    Impacts:
    Agricole: Within a short period of its introduction into Ghana A. fulica had achieved significance as a crop pest (von Stanislaus et al. 1987, in Raut and Barker 2002).
    Compétition: Achatina fulica entirely displaced a native snail in Ghana (Cooling 2005).
    Économique/Subsistance: At present there is little economic information on the economic status of Achatina fulica in areas invaded in Africa (Raut & Barker 2002). However, within a short period of its introduction into Ghana A. fulica achieved dominance in the Achatinidae community (Raut & Barker 2002).
    Transmission de maladie: Achatina fulica distributes, in its faeces, spores of Phytophthora palmivora, the cause of black pod disease in cacao (Theobroma cacao) plants in Ghana (Evans 1973, in Raut and Barker 2002).
