On behalf of Carcinological Society of Japan, I would like to express my sincere condolences on the passing of Prof Michael Turkay, Senckenberg Forschunginstitut und Naturmuseum, Frankfurt am Main, who passed away on 9 September 2015.  His contribution to crustacean biology was tremendous, and it is a great loss to the community of crustacean biology and marine biology in the world. 


   With genuine sadness,


          Akira Asakura

          President, Carcinological Society of Japan
