From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The Chinese mitten crab already appears in Belgium from 1933. The crab originates from the Far East and was presumably brought to Europe as a larva in the ballast water of ships. From Germany, the species spread through Northern- and Western-Europe. The Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis predominantly lives in rivers, but migrates seaward in the late summer to breed in the brackish part of the estuaries. The egg-carrying females spend the winter at sea, and return to the brackish part of the estuary in spring to release the larvae in the water which then develop to juvenile crabs. These juveniles migrate back up the rivers, streams and canals to complete the life cycle. [details]
