Let’s start from unique geographic features in Taiwan. Emergence of the Japan Current(The Black Tide or the Kuroshio current) and drift of the North Pacific Current brings vast planktons, and then various fishes, shrimps, and ,of course, crabs. Luckily, northeastern seashore of Taiwan just is located on belts of abundant fishery. Especially, there are the most colorful and plentiful habitants of crabs living in from beaches to deep sea in this world. Recently, pollutions have threatened and damaged ecosystem of ocean deeply. If we don’t take action, this treasure will disappear for goods and our generations never understand the wonderful gift from the nature, CRAB! The fishery is so abundant that most of collection was from abandoned fishery (1. Paradise for crab! 2. Want to know why? Find answers from the museum). And they also spend lots of time in northeastern coast searching for valuable and unknown crab. Gradually, it has become the largest crab museum on the earth leading you to world of crab in interesting way.
