MSC wins Habitat grant to study Blue Swimmer Crabs

Students involved in scientific research

Thanks to the City of Bunbury Habitat grant MSC students will be working with the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (formerly Fisheries Department) to study blue swimmer crabs in Koombana Bay. Eager students will collect and record crab data in order to monitor population numbers, the presence of chitinoclastic shell disease and water quality. Following the recent increase in shell disease in blue swimmer crabs, it was noted that there is insufficient data and limited ongoing data into crab numbers in Bunbury.

Lead MSC Integrated Science teacher Lynette said “it’s an exciting opportunity for students to conduct authentic scientific research in a hands on practical way. Most importantly research scientists will use the data collected by the students to assist in their monitoring. The project has great value for the local community, for both commercial and recreational fishers".
