Marmorkrebs continue their rise in Germany

Peay S. 2009. Invasive non-indigenous crayfish species in Europe: Recommendations on managing them. Knowledge and Management of Aquatic Ecosystems 394-395: 3. http://dx.doi.org/10.1051/kmae/2010009

This paper contains a couple of mentions about Marmorkrebs (though they are so brief that doesn’t quite rate a separate entry in the abstracts). The most important one is this:

At least three new populations of marbled crayfish Procambarus sp. have been found in the wild in Germany in the past two years, all aquarium discards (Chucholl, pers. comm.).

“Chucholl” is Chris Chucholl, who is studying ecology and invasive species issues.
