Abstract
    The Decapoda Natantia are rather poorly represented in the estuarine area of the rivers Rhine, Meuse and Scheldt. Only 2 marine and 1 brackish water species are common. Another 8 species, 6 marine, 1 brackish water and 1 fresh water species, are rare and only incidentally found. Some of these species are possibly not even continuously present in the Delta area. In an isolated inland pool another brackish water species is present. Offshore, in the North Sea, another 5 species do occur. Some data on breeding, growth, age, food and migration are given.
