    Every year, a dive team recovers lost fishing nets and other materials from ship wrecks in the North Sea- coordinated by 'Stichting Duik de Noordzee Schoon' (Foundation DDNZS, or 'Dive to Clean the North Sea'). Unlike on previous occasions, this time material from the British part of the North Sea was collected and only one locality in Dutch waters was sampled. Data about the mollusc fauna of the wrecks was gathered via inspection of the retrieved fishing nets and via soil samples taken by the divers. Most samples were small, but relatively rich in species (in total at least I 06). As a result of the different sampling area, this included quite a few that had not been seen during earlier DDNZS expeditions. Modiolula phaseolina (Philippi, 1844) was recorded for the first time from several localities in the British part of the southern North Sea.
