  1. Didn’t I read once that on the East Coast there is no season or limit on the taking of green crabs? Also, I recall the article mentioned that they were delicious! A similar promotion here might help keep them in check.

    1. Bill,

      So far, the population of European green crabs is very low in Puget Sound. If the numbers were to become a major infestation, such as in locations on the East Coast, “open season” might be a strategy to consider. Because of the risk of misidentifying a native species, observers are being asked to take a picture of any crab suspected of being a green crab and to send it to the Crab Team, See “Report a green crab sighting.”
