Invasive Green Crab Could Threaten Marine Life
A growing number of invasive European green crab have been found at Dungeness Spit, based on trapping done by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Multiple crabs are being found at the same site, over successive days of trapping. This indicates a situation where the population could grow very quickly without intervention.

European green crab is one of the most globally-successful invasive species, and established populations are problems in Australia, South Africa and the East Coast of the United States. Where abundant, the crabs have been blamed for damaging shellfish harvests and decimating sea grass beds.

The key to dealing with the invasive crabs is early detection and rapid response. The goal is to find isolated populations when they are still rare, and reduce or eliminate them.
