Facilitating Research at Forfar

A group of 6 students and an instructor from SUNY Oneonta recently finished a 4-week research trip on Andros. 

The students learned about land crabs – a traditional food source that has been threatened by development, disaster, and over-harvesting. 

The data they collected will help to determine land crab fishery stock abundance on North Andros Island as a means of enabling long-term, sustainable harvests of this economically and culturally important food source.
