Abstract
    Pennant’s swimming crab (Portumnus latipes) was rarely recorded from the German North Sea coast, until it became a steady faunistic element from 1992. The occurrences show that the species has always been found in warmer periods and, thus, is a good indicator for warming of North Sea coastal waters.
