Emily Grason, Marine Ecologist, is program coordinator of Washington Sea Grant’s Crab Team. Together with Sea Grant colleagues and partners, she oversees a comprehensive program focused on early detection, monitoring and control of the European green crab, considered one of the world’s worst invasive species. She spends a lot of time in the mud, working with volunteers to document sightings of green crab and track the species’ impacts. Her work contributes towards development of a long-term dataset on the organisms that live in habitats most likely to be affected by green crab, with the goal being to improve our understanding of, and ability to protect, Washington’s pocket estuaries and salt marshes.
