Marine intertidal: Dr Larry Harris, University of New Hampshire

Dr Larry Harris, professor at the University of New Hampshire, talks about some of the marine intertidal species of concern in Maine. These species include the Asian shore crab, European green crab, codium, and invasive tunicates. Many have moved into Maine, but are not yet found north of the Casco Bay area....or so we think. Listen to Larry, then go out and do some looking and reporting for yourself.
