Green Crab Working Summit 2018
Green Crab Fishery and Market Development to Mitigate the Impacts of an Invasive Species
In June 2018, Green Crab Working Summit was held in Portland, ME. The summit was designed for fishermen, chefs, consumers, anyone in the seafood industry, regulators, scientists and educators who have been thinking about, studying or already fishing for, or eating green crabs.
The two-day agenda included speakers from chefs to educators to scientists, cooking demonstrations, round-table discussions, and opportunities to make connections and strategize. This summit was an opportunity to learn from each other, network and strategize on how best to mitigate the impacts of this invader.
