100 Word Wednesday: Week 130 – Crabs


It was as a huge crisis within the crab industry. The crabs were dying, dropping like flies and the culprit was climate change.

For years the water temperature within the lake had been rising making it impossible for many species to survive.

Already large numbers of fish had washed up on shores around the lake.

Now the heartbreaking discovery of the dead crabs. The local restaurants prided themselves on their crab cuisine. There had been a rush to find as many alive and establish climate-controlled breeding ponds in an effort to save the economy. We hoped this might save us.
