Join the New Hampshire Green Crab Project to search the coast for green crabs! Volunteers will contribute to a study evaluating the potential for a commercial fishery to help control this nonnative species. Green crabs are edible, but because they are smaller than other popular crabs, they are not commonly harvested for food. To this end, NH Sea Grant is researching when green crabs molt to explore the feasibility of a soft-shell crab market (similar to blue crabs). The event will start with a brief training in crab identification and survey methods with Sea Grant biologist Dr. Gabby Bradt, and then we will survey the coast together for green crabs.
