From regional or thematic species database
Introduced species abundance in French part of the Bay of Biscay (Marine Region) : One specimen was collected in 1900 in Rochefort, France (Goulletquer et al. 2002). [details]

Introduced species impact in German part of the North Sea (Marine Region) : Other impact - undefined or uncertain [details]

Introduced species impact in Celtic Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Other impact - undefined or uncertain [details]

Introduced species management in German part of the North Sea (Marine Region) : yes [details]

Introduced species population trend in Aegean Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Blue crabs are established in the eastern Mediterranean (Galil 2002), the Aegean Sea (Enzenrob et al. 1997), the Adriatic Sea (Beqiraj and Kashta 2010), and the Gulf of Taranto (Gennaio et al. 2006). In several locations, such as the Nile Delta and the Aegean Sea, large population outbreaks have occurred followed by sharp declines (Anonymous 1965; Enzenrob et al. 1997). [details]

Introduced species population trend in Maltese part of the Mediterranean Sea - Eastern Basin : There are only isolated records in the central and western Mediterranean (Malta, northwest Italy, France) and its establishment in this region is unknown. [details]

Introduced species population trend in Mediterranean Sea - Western Basin (IHO Sea Area) : There are only isolated records in the central and western Mediterranean (Malta, northwest Italy, France) and its establishment in this region is unknown. [details]

Introduced species population trend in Belgian part of the North Sea : Several reproducing populations are known from waters receiving thermal effluents from power plants in the Netherlands and Belgium (Wolff 2005, Kerckhof et al. 2007; Nehring 2011).  [details]

Introduced species population trend in French part of the Bay of Biscay (Marine Region) : There are only isolated records in the central and western Mediterranean (Malta, northwest Italy, France) and its establishment in this region is unknown. [details]

Introduced species population trend in Italian part of the Ligurian Sea (Marine Region) : There are only isolated records in the central and western Mediterranean (Malta, northwest Italy, France) and its establishment in this region is unknown. [details]

Introduced species remark In Greek part of the Ionian Sea (Marine Region) : One of the worst invasive aquatic species in the Mediterranean Sea.  [details]

Introduced species remark in Spanish part of the Mediterranean Sea - Western Basin (Marine Region) : "Callinectes sapidus...was [previously] reported from the Mediterranean and Aegean coast of Turkey and was previously reported from the Sea of Marmara (Zaitsev and Ozturk 2001)". [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in France (Nation) : Shipping [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in Black Sea (IHO Sea Area) : Ships: accidental with ballast water, sea water systems, live wells or other deck basins
These crabs are abundant in and near the major seaports of the Eastern US, and occur in the water column as larvae and swimming juveniles, making them likely candidates for ballast water transport. [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal Italian part of the Ligurian Sea (Marine Region) Ships: accidental with ballast water, sea water systems, live wells or other deck basins [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal United States part of the North Pacific Ocean (Marine Region) Aquaculture: deliberate [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in Maltese part of the Mediterranean Sea - Eastern Basin (Marine Region) : Unknown [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in Turkey (Nation) : Ships: general [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in German part of the North Sea (Marine Region) : Possible pathways of introduction include active migration, larval dispersal via water currents or ships's hulls. [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal United Kingdom part of the North Sea (Marine Region) Ships: general [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in Belgian part of the North Sea: Ships: accidental with ballast water, sea water systems, live wells or other deck basins [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal in Greek part of the Ionian Sea (Marine Region) : Natural dispersal
Dispersal from populations already present in the Mediterranean [details]

Introduced species vector dispersal United Kingdom part of the English Channel (Marine Region) Ships: general [details]
