"2022 update on the status of the invasive European green crab in Washington State"
Presented by Neil Harrington
Environmental biologist, Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe

In 2022 the proliferation of European green crab in Washington was declared an emergency by Governor Inslee. I will go over the biological and ecological implications of this invasive species and detail the fight to prevent their establishment with a focus on the North Olympic Peninsula.

Harrington has worked as an environmental biologist for the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe’s Natural Resources Department for ten years. His work focuses on harmful algal blooms, native Olympia oyster habitat restoration, invasive European green crabs, Dungeness crab larval monitoring and outreach and education. He represents the tribe on the Dungeness River Audubon Center Board, the Jefferson County Marine Resources Committee and the National Harmful Algal Bloom Committee.
