Why does this little crab cause so much destruction in the coasts of America, SA, and Australia?

Why does this little crab cause so much destruction in the coasts of America, SA, and Australia? The native crabs are way bigger, they should be able to just eat it.

    I read somewhere that blue crabs are moving farther north into colder waters because there's so many green crabs to eat.

      The blue crab is taking the fight to the enemy's homeland and is invasive in the Mediterranean I believe.

      they don't get big enough for people to try and eat them. The biggest they get are fist sized and their claws are not satisfactory in size.
      Of course they are more than edible, its just that westerners have this concept of fish or aquatic creatures being "trash" if they are not the largest, easiest to eat, easiest to prepare animal you can catch.
      Also amerimutts are scared of eating stuff from the water because they are told that they are poisoning themselves with muh mercury and carcinogens

        I’ve never heard of either of those fears/ideas. Everyone will eat a crab or lobster or whatever if they get the chance and they know it’s edible I’d think

          There's a massive difference between being willing to eat something and being willing to buy and prepare something.

            they dont buy that stuff because its expensive, seafood is generally expensive for anything that isnt a shrimp, because most people dont live near a coast and theres a lot imports, lobster is about $30/lb, you can more beef for that kind of money

    Don't all crabs spawn a frickload of young? How come European crabs take over so quickly then?

    • 1 month ago

      Animals outside of their natural habitat lack the checks and counters that keep them from increasing their numbers out of proportion.
      European crabs are extremely invasive in NA and Australia, but the Atlantic blue crab is extremely invasive in parts of Europe and causing massive ecological and economic damage.

      You in the US or Europe? If youre in the US you should release it in the wild, for shits and giggles.

        US east coast. They are like earthworms here. There is not a coast in my state that does not have them, and they are the most common thing you find tidepooling.
        I probably will have to end up releasing him to be with his brothers if he grows up and culturally enriches any of my fish

    the problem is they eat smaller things
    also another problem is their habit, one of the problem is theyre burrowers and digging into estuaries destorys a lot of the grasses which creates problems, is the same problem with american signal crayfish in europe, which is a problem there because europe is urbanite shithole so theyre used to degrading riverbanks

      European Green Crabs also have a surprisingly high tolerance to salinity and temperature (they range from Morocco to Iceland and Scandinavia), which means theyre far more adaptable than many native american species.
      And despite their size they can actually bully other crabs into submission
