Billions of snow crabs in Alaska likely vanished due to warm ocean

Warmer ocean temperatures have likely caused the sudden and shocking disappearance of billions of snow crabs in Alaska, which had previously baffled scientists and environmentalists, a new study has shown. The eastern Bering Sea snow crabs, once thought to be overfished, actually starved to death en masse because the change in water temperature “increased their caloric needs considerably”, scientists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in the study. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/oct/20/alaska-snow-crabs-dead-ocean-temperatures-climate-change

              This news highlights the devastating impact of climate change on marine life. The disappearance of billions of snow crabs in Alaska is not only a loss to the ecosystem but also to the fishing industry and local communities. It is important that we take urgent action to mitigate the effects of global warming and protect our oceans and the creatures that inhabit them.
