Working for a healthy, sustainable Salish Sea marine environment
Early detection of European Green Crab presents the best chance to reduce the spread and impact of this globally damaging invasive species.
Washington Sea Grant and Washington State University Extension are teaming up to launch Molt Search, a new volunteer-based early detection program to complement the existing WSG Crab Team trapping and monitoring network.
Molt Search teaches volunteers what to look for and how to report the presence of European green crab molts along inland shorelines. See the Protocols and Crab Identification Sheet.
Registration is required for volunteer training workshops – here are local dates
