Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species remark In Baltic Sea (IHO Sea Area) : It is likely to be an important prey item for fishes and other predators, wherever it is abundant.

The initial invasion to the Netherlands may have occurred either with ship fouling or with plantings of the Eastern Oyster (Crassotrea virginica).  [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorIntroduced species vector dispersal in North Sea (IHO Sea Area) : The later spread of R. harrisii seems to have resulted from coastal shipping and oyster transfers, or through multiple introductions from the Western Atlantic - the frequent large jumps and spotty distribution are inconsistent with natural dispersal.  [details]

From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The dwarf crab or Zuiderzee crab Rhithropanopeus harrisii originally only occurred along the east coast of America, but came to Europe through ship transport. The first European observations date from 1874, in the Netherlands. In Belgium, the first living specimens of the dwarf crab were encountered in 1991, in the Sea Scheldt near Antwerp. This crab is a typical species for fresh and brackish waters and is comfortable in estuaries. It is a predator of several types of invertebrates.  [details]
