Here is the most recent rapid response plan for the Chinese mitten crab (Eriocheir sinensis). This plan was created by the Sea Grant Programs in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine along with local, state, regional and federal stakeholders. It establishes a foundation for prevention, early detection and rapid response efforts of the Chinese mitten crab.

The purpose of my experiment was to see if rocky intertidal ecosystems or sandy beaches are in more of a threat by the overpopulation and the biodiversity count decrease. My methods included finding data on the Vital Signs Maine website and putting it into a table which I then used on nceskid.org to put into a graph which I used in my results to show my data.
I’m studying this because this data can help clammers and restaurant
know where to find mussels and where they aren’t.
One of the methods I used was looking on certain websites to find the data and there was definitely a correlation between the blue mussel and green crabs.
I found overall that in all the places green crabs were spotted 220 were confirmed and 20 were not confirmed.
Looking through the green crab data and blue mussel data, I can tell that the blue mussel population has gone down cause there’s less blue mussels where green crabs are.
My project’s purpose is to determine whether or whether not Cape Elizabeth has a healthy marine ecosystem. I used Vital Signs to record and count data from inventories on the crab species and periwinkle species. I did this for each individual species so I could determine if the invasive species were dominating the native crab and periwinkles. My findings indicate that the green and Asian shore crab and common periwinkle (all invasive) have diminished the native crab and periwinkle population.
