In various places in the Oosterschelde estuary in 2014, Trivia arctica has been more often observed by recreational divers than in previous years. Only in 2001, the first native individual of this mollusk was found in the Oosterschelde. Since then, until 2011, each year more live animals were found by recreational divers. In 2012 and 2013 there were fewer, but in 2014 there were again near Zierikzee so many that they were seen almost every weekend and often by several recreational divers.
The northern cowrie (Trivia arctica) is a small but nevertheless also striking mollusk which belongs to the group of marine snails. The length of the shell is no greater than about 1 centimeter.
