Green Crab Invasion and Black Sea Bass Moving North

November 25th Episode:

This week’s program with Rob Moir on Women’s Radio Network, hosted by K.C. Armstrong, focuses on the marauding green crabs, an invasive species on the Atlantic Coast, and the black sea bass that have been expanding their range and preying on this alien species. He then comments on the article published by Rebecca Kessler about how fish and marine animals are responding to environmental changes in the supposedly warming Gulf of Maine, and explains the “barn door open” “barn door closed” phenomenon. Rob closes with an explanation and history about estimating fish populations and how eating seafood and eating local can help us reduce our carbon footprint.
