Green Crab Invasion & Review of Eventide/Street & Co.

This week’s Portland Phoenix includes an article about the invasive green crab and the impact its having on the Maine shellfish industry,

They’re green, they’re mean, and they’re endangering not only Maine’s soft-shell clam population, but also oysters, mussels, lobsters, and eelgrass. This menace is known as the green crab (a/k/a carcinus maenas), an invasive, omnivorous species that has been in Maine for 114 years but only recently began affecting the productivity of clam flats in places like Freeport, Brunswick, and on down the coast.

The new issue also includes a review of Eventide and Street & Co.
