Journal articles Green Crab Population, Size and Impact in our Marine Ecosystem Abstract In our Core Science we went to Reid State Park, Griffins head, and Todds landing to study the green crab population. We did this to see how many green crabs are in our marine ecosystem. The method we used to do this was a catch and release system. We did this through a Legal crab trap. We caught over three hundred crabs and only a handful came back. Most of the crabs we caught where around 7 seven centimeters long. The green crabs are killing most of the animals in are ecosystem. Also if we were to continue doing this I would put more traps out in different places. 2017-12-20 FlufflyCrabbyCr... 3

Journal articles Findings, The Green Crab Population Might Not Be Growing As Fast As You Think So recently there's been very big fuss over the increasing number of green crabs and their danger to the ecosystem, but I have some very interesting data that backs up an interesting case. To get any of the data that I was going to use we had to go out and study the green grab population using the catch and release method. I then took the data that we found, added up all of what we found per year, then divide the amount of crabs we got per year by the number of traps used that year. 2017-12-20 Invasivecrabass... 2
Journal articles findings : BMS 7th grade Crabbing Experiment for 2017 Abstract I stated in my introduction what we the 7th grade crabers did. I stated that green crabs were bad because they are invasive (bad for the environment) In the methods, I said how to use the catch and release program. I said what we did with the traps and the bait of sardines in oil to attract the crabs also in the methods. My first graph for my results I said what the chart showed and the data. My second one was the same as the first graph. I conquered all of what we did in the conclusion. I talked about how and when we went to Todd’s Landing in the conclusion. 2017-12-20 teamfire 1
Journal articles Findings: Green Crab Population in Maine Coast Investigation Fall of 2017 Abstract The green crabs are destroying our ecosystem. So we want to see what was going on. For our study we used the catch and release method. We also recorded down data about the green crabs. We placed the traps in three different places. The crabs that we caught in that trap were many colors. The green crabs were very aggressive. There was also a very big population. 2017-12-20 colorfulcrabs 3

Journal articles Findings : Green crabs colors at Griffiths Head and Reid State Park Fall 2017 Abstract Green crabs are affecting the marine ecosystem. We wanted to find out how and why. First we found locations where we could catch them in bulk. We used legal traps that were big enough to catch more than one. And we used the catch and release method so that we were not harming the crabs. We found that the different colors of the crabs had different populations.We found that orange/red colored crabs were the crabs with one of the highest catch rates. Green crabs are bad for the marine ecosystems because they eat clams and mussels and destroy different plants. 2017-12-20 debraandtheunic... 3
Journal articles Findings Green crab trapping 2017 Our investigation was to understand how the green crabs are impacting the marine ecosystem. Green crabs are impacting the marine ecosystem by eating clams, destroying the animals habitats, digging up eelgrass and invading the native crabs’ habitat. To do our study my classmates used the catch and release method to collect all of our data. The catch and release method is catching the animal marking the animal, marking the animal with Insta-Dry nail polish. Then, releasing the crabs after collecting the data over a time of five days. 2017-12-20 ppj 2
Journal articles Findings Invasive Green Crab Investigation Bath Middle School’s 7th grade, went to Phippsburg and Georgetown, Maine to collect crab data. We found, that there is a very large invasive green crab population, they also eat a lot of food, for example, our soft shell clams. Every time the traps were reset, we used the same bait (sardines in oil) and the same amount every time. Also every time we reset the trap , it stayed in the water for at least twenty four hours. The pie charts show us the different colors of crabs from each location. 2017-12-20 ppj 3
Journal articles Findings Georgetown Maine Green Crab Population, 2015-2017 In our green crab research, we were looking for data on the green crabs and how they are affecting the soft-shelled clam population. We want to find out how they are impacting the marine ecosystem so we can counteract them. At Fort Popham and Reid State Park, we set legal green crab traps. We checked and reset these traps everyday, collecting the data over one week in October. The data shows how the colors correspond with whether the crabs are male or female. The graphs addressed the majority of the male/ female population and colors of the green crabs relating to the temperature. 2017-12-20 AYCAMOL 3
