2020 Green Crab Internship in Neah Bay
Last week Clallam MRC interviewed four very qualified candidates for the green crab internship in Neah Bay. We are excited to announce that we hired Angelina Woods who will be working closely with Adrianne Akmajian, marine ecologist at Makah Tribe. Angelina is a running start student at the South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia. Her goal is to pursue a degree and career within the STEM field. During the interviews Adrianne talked about the plans for the 2020 green crab project. They expect to catch a lot of crab and they will be testing other traps in addition to the more traditional Fukui and minnow traps. Since 2017 the trapping effort has caught 2,516 green crabs.
