Abstract
    During the winter 1988-89 there was extensive renewal of water in many of the threshold fjords in the southernmost part of Norway. A result of this was that water containing hydrogen sulphide from the deepest parts of the fjords was raised close to the surface, killing many fish and bottom organisms. While diving in one of the fjords, Trysfjorden, Vest-Agder county (58°05'N, 07°41'E), a number of dead Callianassa subterranea (Montagu) were observed on the bottom between 5-9 m depth. Many of the specimens were ovigerous females. Earlier, only some records of juvenile specimens have been reported from Southern Norway.
