Grapsoidea a new invasive species in European waters: The Asian shore crab was first recorded in the British Isles on the north-west coast of Guernsey in April ; since then several more specimens have been positively sanguinejs on various shores in Guernsey and Jersey.
Prey survival was greater than expected based on the additive experimental design at high predator densities.
