Hi Hunter2, We are really excited about this spotting and would love to have more information about where it was caught. The photo looks to be from a boat? But the location is a residence in an area with no obvious waterway. Please contact us at SERCMittenCrab@si.edu or 443-482-2222. Thanks, Monaca

I'm not sure about sand dunes, but they have done damage to levees. There have only been a few mitten crabs spotted on the Gulf Coast and we defiantly need more information. BTW I added the text to the photo using picnik, a free online photo editor.

Hi Heather,

I posted these photos for the mitten crab mission. I helped create the Mitten Crab Watch Website. I am hoping others will share there spottings with me.

Thanks
