ABOUT THE AUTHORS

Mary Parks has a background in sustainable fisheries, developing underutilized and invasive species and leading environmental compliance programs for commercial seafood
companies. She hails from coastal Maine and first tried eating green crabs in 2005. Over a decade later, she helped found the Green Crab R&D Project, a nonprofit dedicated to green crab culinary development. Based in Boston, she now serves as the organization’s Executive Director.

Thanh Thái is a family nurse practitioner living in coastal New Hampshire. When she’s not seeing patients, she can be found harvesting green crabs and developing recipes. Thanh runs the blog Green Crab Cafe, which explores the vast culinary potential of the invasive crab through diverse recipes and tutorials.
