Journal articles Findings:How are green crabs impacting the marine environment The seventh grade started studying green crabs to further find out how green crabs are are impacting the environment. Green crabs are an invasive species causing harm to native species, which could cause extinction. On the 24-27th of october we went to Reid State Park and Todds Landing; using green crab traps and sardines, we caught 97 green crabs, we found more crabs at another location. We found that green crabs are more populous than we thought, since we found over 200 crabs exclusively at Fort Popham. In all three locations we found 379 crabs, most of those we noticed from data are male. 2017-12-20 EEL 0
Journal articles Findings: The Population and Size of Green Crabs in Phippsburg and Georgetown, Maine Green crabs are bad because they destroy the ecosystem. The green crabs have gotten worse because of calm waters and climate change. The green crabs were caught in legal green crab traps. They were then measured and determined their sex and color. The graph shows how there is a difference in sizes at different locations. These graphs explained how the crabs used energy in different areas. The main question that is asked in our research is, how are invasive crabs impacting the marine ecosystem? 2017-12-20 Invasivecrabass... 1
Journal articles Findings: Crab trap study Abstract In science class we studied about invasive and native crabs but mostly invasive because they are bad. How they are bad is bye taking over are ecosystem making are native crabs have to leave their home. What we did at reid state is we marked them with nail polish and nail polish remover. And we used rectangle crab traps and we used sardines in oil so the crabs would smell it better. Both charts are about green crabs but one is of male and one is about size. 2017-12-20 AYCAMOL 0
Journal articles Findings: Green Crabs Overpopulating the Marine Ecosystem Abstract We went to three places to gather data about green crabs. If people lose their jobs then they will lose money and if they lose money then they will not be able to survive.we went to two places in georgetown to gather catch and release data.we gathered the data for twenty four hours 5 days a week. In our results our graphs shows that green crabs are overpopulated our intertidal zone It also showing the count of male and female activity in our ocean. In our conclusion and throw out our article. 2017-12-20 EEL 0

Journal articles Findings Population of Green Crabs Male/Female and Color at Midcoast Maine Fall 2017 The research our 7th grade class is doing is to figure out why the crab ecosystem is going down, and why changes are happening in the ocean. Green crabs are killing our oceans that is why we need to do something about it. On October 23, 2017 our class went to Reid State Park to do our studies about populations of green crabs. At Reid State Park we used the set, catch and release method to do our research. My results show the population of male and female crabs along with the color of the green crabs. The results show how the ocean ecosystem is being impacted by these invasive crabs. 2017-12-20 FireBreathingDuckies 0
Journal articles Findings: Green Crab Male/Female Ratio Students at Bath Middle School went to Reid State Park to collect crab trap data. This study was conducted because we wanted to find out about the crab population. We went on Oct 24th, 26th, 27th and 28th. We used legal crab traps and sardines in oil, and also did a catch and release experiment and recorded data on the crabs we caught. I made three pie charts for 2015, 2016 and 2017 on the female and male population. The graphs show that over the years the female population has declined and the male population has risen. Currently, the green crab is a huge problem in the marine ecosystem. 2017-12-20 FlufflyCrabbyCr... 0
Journal articles Findings: Green Crabs and the Male/Female Ratio Abstract Green crabs are an invasive species. They eat soft shell clams and native crabs food, they also other marine life animals food. We used rectangular traps to catch the green crabs. We also painted the crabs backs with insta-dry nail polish so that if we got any recaptures we would know. Results that I got were for the color of the bottom of the crabs and if they were male or female. I did my research on how many male or females had a certain color. Out of all the green crabs we caught we only had one recapture and tat told us that the population was huge. 2017-12-20 Invasivecrabass... 0
Journal articles Findings: The invasive green crab Abstract Green crabs are bad because they are invasive. They also destroy the ecosystem. We used the catch and release method. We caught a lot of green crabs. Most of the crabs had orange markings. A lot also had mixed orange markings. Green crabs are bad for the environment because there are so many and they are constantly reproducing. They are also very hard to kill. Green crabs destroy eelgrass which is a common home for many animals in our ecosystem. 2017-12-20 madcrabbyz 0
Journal articles Findings:Number of European Green Crabs Caught in 2015 - 2017 at Fort Popham, Griffith’s Head and Todd’s Landing Abstract European green crabs have been wreaking havoc of the native habitat since only 2013 and they are already are severely damaging the marine ecosystem. The purpose of our study is to find out why the green crabs are extremely resilient and what we can do to the green crabs that will harm them, but not harm others native species. We used the catch and release method to fully understand the size of the population; measuring the size of their carapace, the color of the crab, the sex of the crab, if the crab was aggressive and if the there was anything that stood out about the crab. 2017-12-20 Flitterfluff 0
