Washington Sea Grant, in partnership with KPTZ 91.9 FM in Port Townsend, WA, produces Coastal Cafe, a science-based radio program focusing on regional marine science news. Coastal Cafe brings the latest in marine science information directly to coastal communities in Washington State.

Tonight’s topic:  The European green crab is considered one of the world’s worst invasive species. Emily Grason and Jeff Adams are both experts in aquatic invasive species and as marine ecologists with Washington Sea Grant, they oversee a comprehensive program focused on early detection, monitoring and control of the green crab within the Salish Sea. Learn more about this invasive crab and what is being done by the WSG Crab Team volunteers, staff and many partners to keep tabs on this crab.

Hosts Aaron Barnett and MaryAnn Wagner explore science with researchers, policy experts and people who live and work on the coast about issues impacting Washington State coastal communities and the natural environment.

Tune in at 91.9 FM on Wednesdays at 5:30pm.

You can find the current program and all past shows in the KPTZ Archives.
