BDN Reports on Green Crab Summit at UMaine

The Bangor Daily News reported on the Maine Green Crab Summit held at the University of Maine. Several hundred fishermen, regulators and scientists gathered for the conference to talk about the invasive European green crab and the effects it has on the state’s coastal and marine resources. Attendees and presenters talked about different approaches for control and future management, such as creating a market for the crabs before the softshell clams disappear and marsh banks collapse.
