Logistically the Danish Shellfish Centre at Nykøbing Mors is the base for both the fieldwork and the data collection.

The laboratory work on the parasites, and their larvae also take place here.

DSC is a well equipped laboratory and good aquarium facilities for a working with large collection material. 

Both bachelor and master studies are organised around the material. 

In 2008 there was a large collaborative project between DTU-Aqua and DMU, where a large number of green crabs were collected from the whole Limfjord region west of Løgstør. This material provides the basis for this project, together with material gathered during a number of small-scale pilot studies by  J.T. Høeg, H. Glenner and J. Lützen.

During the pilot work the researchers have established effective collecting and analysis protocols.
