Journal articles Findings: Effects of Climate Change on Green Crab Population in Maine Coast Abstract The purpose of this study was to find out whether climate change has had an impact on the rapid growth of the green crab population in the Maine coastal region. This one way that we are directly affecting this subject and possibly a way to stop or slow the growth. We went to and placed a crab trap at three different locations, Todd’s Landing, Reid State Park, and Fort Popham, over a few days, in several years. The catch and release method was used, and data was collected on population, under-claw color, and whether the crab had been caught and marked before. 2017-12-20 BarbarousButterflies 0
Journal articles Finding: The Impact of Green Crabs on the Marine Ecosystem My investigation is to understand how the green crabs are impacting the marine ecosystem. Green crabs are impacting the marine ecosystem by eating clams, digging up eelgrass and invading the native crabs’ habitat. To do this, my class used the catch and release method to collect this data. This method consists of using Insta-Dry nail polish to mark the animal for further data. Then, releasing the crabs after collecting the data over a week's time. 2017-12-20 Pugs4Ever 0
Journal articles Findings: Crab Trap Study of October 2017 Abstract: Invasive crabs are going to ruin our ecosystem. Green crabs are making a huge impact to our marine ecosystem. We used legal crab traps to get our data. Nail polish was another thing we used to get our data. For our results we found that the green crab population is very large. My graphs show that more than 50% of the green crabs we caught and recorded were male green crabs. The green crab population is very large. Green crabs are a huge threat to our ecosystem. 2017-12-20 aaandw 0
Journal articles Findings: Green Crabs impacting the Marine Ecosystem and its wildlife Abstract: Bath Middle school goes to green crabs sites every year to see if the population has gone up or down. We do this because here visit predators and we don't want the population to go up. We used green crab traps to catch the crabs. We also used the catch and release method to see if the crabs where there the next day. There's more males than females at Todd’s Landing and there is more Females than Males at Fort Popham. We also found that the average carapace size in Reid st Park was 6.8 cm and in 2017 the average carapace size is 6.25 cm. 2017-12-20 TinyElephant 0
Journal articles Findings: Green Crab Trapping 2017 Abstract We went to Reid State Park and Todd’s Landing I explain why green crabs are bad for Maine's ecosystem. I also explain the catch and release method that we used. The catch and release method was to place the traps in the water and the next day pull it, we took out the crabs and painted the backs of them. We painted the backs to help tell the population of the crabs. My results show the differences between the male population and the female population. It also show if there are more male crabs at one place than a somewhere else. 2017-12-20 firepandasinvasion 0
Journal articles Green Crab Trapping 2017 In this I explain why green crabs are bad for Maine's ecosystem. I also explain the catch and release method that we used. The catch and release method was to place the traps in the water and the next day pull it, we took out the crabs and painted the backs of them. The reason why we painted their back so that we can tell them apart from other cabs. My results show the difference between male and female crabs. It also shows the size and number of crabs that we caught. In conclusion the green crabs are destroying the marine coast. 2017-12-20 MarsBars 0
Journal articles Crab Per Trap to Year and Location 2013-2017 Many workers who harvest these marine mammals are being put at risk because of the invaders who are destroying eelgrass, home to many small fish and even juvenile lobsters, who are putting these creatures out of homes into open and unsafe waters. The catch and release method was used to calculate how big the population of green crabs are in the coastal region of Phippsburg and Georgetown. There was only one re-catch caught at Reid State Park marked with yellow nail polish; making the population of green crabs in the Georgetown area one of the biggest. 2017-12-20 BarbarousButterflies 0
Journal articles Findings:How are green crabs impacting the marine environment The seventh grade started studying green crabs to further find out how green crabs are are impacting the environment. Green crabs are an invasive species causing harm to native species, which could cause extinction. On the 24-27th of october we went to Reid State Park and Todds Landing; using green crab traps and sardines, we caught 97 green crabs, we found more crabs at another location. We found that green crabs are more populous than we thought, since we found over 200 crabs exclusively at Fort Popham. In all three locations we found 379 crabs, most of those we noticed from data are male. 2017-12-20 EEL 0
Journal articles Findings: The Population and Size of Green Crabs in Phippsburg and Georgetown, Maine Green crabs are bad because they destroy the ecosystem. The green crabs have gotten worse because of calm waters and climate change. The green crabs were caught in legal green crab traps. They were then measured and determined their sex and color. The graph shows how there is a difference in sizes at different locations. These graphs explained how the crabs used energy in different areas. The main question that is asked in our research is, how are invasive crabs impacting the marine ecosystem? 2017-12-20 Invasivecrabass... 1
Journal articles Findings: Crab trap study Abstract In science class we studied about invasive and native crabs but mostly invasive because they are bad. How they are bad is bye taking over are ecosystem making are native crabs have to leave their home. What we did at reid state is we marked them with nail polish and nail polish remover. And we used rectangle crab traps and we used sardines in oil so the crabs would smell it better. Both charts are about green crabs but one is of male and one is about size. 2017-12-20 AYCAMOL 0
