Abstract

In the Adriatic sea there are many types of different crabs, but the most significant crabs are spiny lobster (Palinurus elaphas) and European lobster (Homarus gammarus) and both belongs to order of Decapoda. In this work has been presented the distribution of these two crabs and their endangerment due to over-fishing. These two species have high economic value and because of that they are often caught with inappropriate fishing gear. Studies have established that the population of lobsters decreases from year to year. It is necessary to take all measures to protect these crab populations, because they play an important role in biodiversity.
