A billion crabs have disappeared and researchers can’t explain why
Well, chili! Those trash cans look sad. According to CBS News, the current supply of snow crabs is very limited and the mystery cannot be explained.
For the first time in history, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has canceled the winter snow crab season in the Bering Sea due to limited numbers, resulting in low numbers.
According to reports, nearly a billion people have disappeared in two years, and no one seems to know why.
State officials say an estimated one billion crabs have mysteriously disappeared within two years. It marked a 90% drop in their population.
Ben Daly, a researcher with ADF&G, is investigating the situation and says disease could be one reason the crabs are disappearing.
Daly told CBS News.
Daly also says that climate control could be a reason.
Environmental conditions are changing rapidly,” says Daly. “We’ve seen warm conditions in the Bering Sea over the past few years, and we’ve seen an adaptive cold responsepecies, so it’s pretty obvious that this is connected. It’s a canary in a coal mine for other species that need cold country.”
Lack of butter
Follow @nypost, “Data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture shows that avocado stockpiles in the United States in August fell by 10% from the previous month. However, it is down 22% from the same time a year ago.”
Midwest avocado producers say that “spot cream is very scarce to be unavailable” and that “in the Northeast, retail demand for avocados is growing, but tight inventories are causing some producers to Exporters must regulate supply on existing orders,” the report said.
The USDA report also said there were about 282 million pounds of avocados in stock last month, but that was down from 362 million pounds in 2021.
Guys, have you bought all the crabs and dipped them in butter?
