Join Marina Wright, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and she shares information about European Green Crab, their biology, how to identify them, how they arrived in BC, where they are currently found in the province, and their potential impacts to our marine environment. We will also celebrate the launch of a new e-course on European Green Crab that will be hosted by the Invasive Species Council of BC in collaboration with Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
This webinar is supported by Fisheries and Oceans Canada.
