BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Life is hard for some tiny creatures living in the mud at the bottom of Bellingham bay.
A new state report finds that sediment-dwelling critters like clams, snails, sea stars and crabs are showing signs of stress.
Scientist Valerie Partridge says they didn’t find much life.
Partridge say they also found the number and diversity of invertebrates are unusually low.
Scientists don’t know the cause of the problem.
