Ice crabs die in the Bering Sea

#shorts #snow crabs #starvation events #Bering Sea snow crab population #study Over the last few years, there has been a massive decline in the Bering Sea snow crab population. The Alaskan Department of Fish and Game has closed the fishing season for the 2022/23 season in order to conserve and sustain stocks of the snow crabs. Rising temperatures in the ocean are thought to be at least in part responsible for this decline. A new study by scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the University of Alaska finds that a heatwave during 2018 and 2019 may have led to this disaster. The crabs were restricted in their range, triggering a starvation event. The study is published in Science.
