Chinese Mitten Crab - Rapid Response Plan

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.

Do Common Periwinkles Prefer Rocky Intertidal Ecosystems or Sandy Beaches

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.

Is There Correlation Between Blue Mussel Population and Green Crab Population

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.
