Recently, divers have found the sponge crab several times in the Eastern Scheldt, after being absent from the North Sea since 1953. MAE's own crab fanatic Dr. Reindert Nijland gave an interview on these 'teddybear-like crabs' for the Resource.

The observation was also published in Marine Biodiversity Records, which you can find here.
