Green crab order

OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee Wednesday issued an emergency order to address the exponential increase in the European green crab population within the Lummi Nation’s Sea Pond and outer coast areas.

The European green crab is an invasive species that, if they become permanently established, will particularly harm endangered species, impact resources that are part of the cultural identity of the tribes and native peoples, and affect small businesses.

The emergency order directs the Department of Fish and Wildlife to begin implementation of emergency measures as necessary, to effect the eradication of or to prevent the permanent establishment of the European green crab.

The order is effective immediately and will remain in effect until rescinded.
