Search for invasive green crab continues during pandemic

The state’s stay-at-home order has halted much of the field research that would normally be underway in Puget Sound this spring, but a small group of scientists and volunteers have been able to continue their search for an invading marauder along the shoreline. Their work has been classified as critical by the state.

Eric Wagner reports for our magazine Salish Sea Currents on the search for the invasive green crab.
