During 2021 ‘Stichting Duik de Noordzee Schoon’ (ddnzs Foundation, or Dive to Clean the North Sea) organised two campaigns of dive teams recovering fishing nets and other materials from wrecks in the North Sea. From a sam-ple of seabed sediment next to the wreck of SS Ara, north of Schier monnikoog, the Netherlands, a single shell of Philinissima denticulata (J. Adams, 1800) was recovered. This is the first record for the Netherlands, but it is expected to have a wider distribution in the area.
