If you wander around Aberaeron Harbour on a dry summer’s day (or any other harbour in Britain!) you’re likely to see someone searching for crabs. The crab they’re most likely to find is the shore crab.
The shore crab is the most commonly encountered crab in the British Isles. This plucky animal is a favourite with rock-poolers and fishers from a very young age.
When disturbed, the shore crab raises its claws in self defence, it’s known in France as le crabe enrage – the enraged crab! The Shore crab will eat almost anything. It can live in river mouths where the salt content of the water is as low as ⅙ that of normal sea water. In rock pools it can withstand temperatures fatal to other crabs and many other sea creatures.
The art work is from an original by Ian Hughes based on childhood memories of rock pooling and searching for crabs. You can read more about Ian’s early encounters with crabs in his blog!
10% of profits from all our marine life products will go to #2minutebeachclean. We love the work they’re doing, showing that everyone can make a difference to the plastic pollution problem in just 2 minutes! They say – ‘We believe that every piece of litter removed from the beach matters. So it doesn’t matter if you do 2 minutes or 30. Each and every piece of marine plastic removed from the beach is a piece that will no longer go on to kill.’ And we couldn’t agree more!
