Formed after the deaths of the Commanders of the Marinestoßtruppabteilung and Sonderkommando Bigler and those two units merged. In December 1941 the former Marinestoßtruppabteilung was removed from this unit and used to form Marineartillerieabteilung 531. The remainder of the Abteilung was moved to Ösel and disbanded.
