Abstract
    Sea mammals form a mobile substrate for epizoic and parasitic crustaceans. In 2003 the humpback whale was observed for the first time in Dutch waters. Three species of barnacle and one amphipod were collected from two young humpback whales, found dead along the Dutch coast. Of the four crustacean species three proved to be first records for the Dutch fauna. In this paper the information on distribution, historical findings and details on the new records are provided. The collected crustacean speci-mens, as well as the whale skeletons, are deposited in the collections of the National Museum of Natural History in Leiden, accessible for further study.
