Animals looking like Crustaceans have been around for at least 500 million years, and in that time have evolved into many forms. We will try to help you identify some of the 2000 species of crustaceans that you may find in the UK, concentrating on those that may be encountered either on the shore or at recreational diving depths. Both the common and some more unusual species, and some that you may not have even thought of as being crustaceans before.
