It's the moment you have been waiting for: "The Blue Crab Bowl".

Your first thought would be a blue bowl with a picture of a crab, right?

Or, if you are thinking sports, you may say it's a crab picking contest. But The Blue Crab Bowl is a competition between high school teams in the state of Virginia to test knowledge of the world's oceans.

Did you know we know more about the surface of Mars than the Atlantic Ocean?

Here's a warm-up question. Which of the following are not impacted by the decreasing pH levels in ocean water, termed ocean acidification?

Is it growth rates of Coral Reefs; Mollusk shells; Diatom shells; or Shark's teeth?

The Bishop Sullivan Catholic High Crusaders are the six time defending champions.  They are on their way to the National Ocean Science Bowl in Milwaukee.

Go, team!
