Marmorkrebs in the Middle East

I heard from astacologist Chris Lukhaup today that marbled crayfish are now in the rivers and ponds on Israel. Yes, plural.

This represents another signifcant expansion of Marmorkrebs across the globe, as it is the first report in western Asia. 

I don’t have more details at this time as to location and such, but am sure it will be forthcoming. I have updated the map of Marmorkrebs introductions with a generic pin for all of Israel at this time.

Thanks to Chris for giving me permission to share this.
