I am researching whether the size of green crabs has increased or decreased over time. This is important because if we know that information we will be able to know what to look for and how much of a threat green crabs are to the ecosystem. At Reid State Park, Todd’s Landing, and Fort Popham we measured the size of the crabs carapace. The data showed that the crabs’ average size was inconsistent, but there was a slight decrease. In conclusion, the crabs’ size is decreasing slowly.
