A RARE BLUE CRAB BEGAN TO BREED IN THE BLACK SEA
In underwater researches carried out by scientists in the Eastern Black Sea Region, breeding was detected in the blue crab, whose homeland is the Atlantic Ocean and which is described as a ‘horror dream’ of fishermen because it tore the nets. Breeding has been detected in the blue crab, which is seen as the ‘terrible dream’ of fishermen due to its rupture. Rare crab species in the region; Prof. from Ordu University, who started research to determine the effects on the marine ecosystem and fish population. Mehmet Aydın, “Crabs are also creatures found in healthy ecosystems. We are following what kind of effect they will have in the Black Sea.”
Ordu University Fatsa Marine Sciences Faculty Fisheries Technology Engineering Department Lecturer Prof. Scientists expanded their research when they detected the breeding of the ‘terrible dream’ blue crab, which fishermen thought to have come to the region due to the variability in sea water temperature. while tearing their webs. The effects of crab species on the marine ecosystem and fish population and the distribution areas of the research project will be revealed.
‘It started to be seen more frequently in the BLACK SEA’
Stating that blue crabs breed in the Black Sea, Prof. . We think that crabs breed in the Black Sea. “I don’t think that blue crabs will have a very negative impact on the Black Sea ecosystem,” he said.
‘WE FOLLOW THE IMPACT’
Explaining that other creatures may enter the Black Sea ecosystem as a result of the change in sea water temperatures, Prof. Dr. Aydın said, “The Black Sea is getting warmer. The water temperature has started to increase day by day. Global warming, climate change or the change of seasons have been talked about a lot in recent years. Therefore, when the temperatures of the waters change, many creatures can enter the Black Sea ecosystem via the Bosphorus. “We don’t know if they will react, but the blue crab is a creature with a high commercial value. All living things have a place in the ecosystem. Crabs are also healthy living creatures. We follow how it will affect the Black Sea. Our studies on this continue,” he said. (DHA)
