Sea Spiders are an aquatic arachniform, a creature capable of living and breathing water. Like a spider, the sea spider has a set of spinneretts capable of weaving a web underwater to catch small fish and other swimming life forms. Their strong and sticky webbing can quickly clog water intake and drainage systems.

Sea spiders are Hermaphroditic and hugely prolific egg layers, capable of producing many thousands of eggs a year. While some species of Sea Spiders simply let the eggs go free, many collect eggs into a large egg sack, protected by the spiders silk. Either form adds to the enviornmental damage done by these creatures.
