Best Answer

The European green crab was an accidental species transfer to America. The crab arrived by hitching a ride by hiding in the seaweed bedding of other intended shellfish deliveries such as lobsters. The crab arrived in the mid 1800's during a time when transferring species was far from a concern to humans at the times so proper care wasn't being made.
