With Roger Warner, Green Crab Research and Development

Green Crabs are a marauding European invader that are eating our clams, mussels, and eelgrass, and eroding our salt marshes. What can be done? Researchers and the seafood industry are teaming up to market these crabs as food and fertilizer. Could this be a winning strategy help manage these invasive species and help save our coasts from this destructive invader? Come find out!
