    Wait til they get all that Government Housing for the Invasive European Green Crabs completed “WIND TURBINES”!!! Then they ship over Ballast full of nano size Green Crab Eggs along with Parts and Components to build the Turbines benefiting which ever Country they’re contracted with… I’m not talking made in American!!! I believe the Turbines are not a Healthy choice and will not protect our PRISTINE SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD PROVIDING OCEANS!!! A mature Green Crab 2 to 3 inches across are capable of producing 200,000 or more Eggs!!! Then they take over like Locust!!! Bay Scallops will be a memory as will every other beneficial Shellfish!!!
