Until recently, no invasive crayfish species have been reported in Romania. This is
the first record of the cambarid species Orconectes limosus on Romanian territory; years after
the countries on the upstream stretch of the Danube River reported the presence of the
species on their territories. Monitoring activities in the area where the Danube enters
Romania show that the extent of the invasion is currently relatively low; the species has been
found on 55 of the 1073 km that comprise the Romanian sector of the Danube River.
