Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorAlien species The asian shore crab Hemigrapsus sanguineus originates from the Northwest Pacific region, but was brought to Europe by ships (either in ballast water or attached to the hull). The first European observations were made in 1999 in France and Holland. In 2006 the crab was also reported in Belgium in the regions Knokke-Heist and Nieuwpoort. The asian shore crab Hemigrapsus sanguineus and its relative the hairy clawed shore crab Hemigrapsus takanoi are numerous along the Belgian coast, both in the inter-tidal zone and deeper into the sea. Eventhough there is a lack of conclusive studies, there is no doubt that these alien species have an influence on European systems. Both are predators of many invertebrates and compete with native crab fauna. [details]
