Abstract
    Although most populations of the dog whelk (Nucella lapillus) in The Netherlands recovered after the ban on TBT in anti-fouling paints, until now this was not observed in the mouth of the river Westerschelde. In this area TBT was produced and there is heavy traffic of ocean-going vessels. This is the first record of a reproducing population near Vlissingen since the 1970s.
