We need sustainable, not seesaw, management
Our blue crabs are in trouble again. Since last year, the juvenile crab count had plummeted to 111 million, down from 587 million in 2012, according to the 2013 Winter Dredge Survey results. The overall number of crabs in the Bay dropped by over 60 percent.
Blue crabs may, once again, be approaching the crisis levels of five or six years ago.
