We here describe howthe densities of Baltic tellins Macoma balthica decreased with two orders of magnitude over the last 20 years. Densities of several 100 Macoma per square meter are now very rare in this once very widespread species. Local declines have followed severe forms of habitat disturbance, notably mechanical dredging for seafood, especially cockles Cerastoderma edule.
