Blue crabs support vital fisheries and play a crucial role in the coastal and estuarine ecosystems of Maryland as well as throughout the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of North and South America. In the Chesapeake Bay, the number of crabs varies from year to year, and this fluctuation is only partly understood by scientists. This presentation will discuss some of what scientists know and don’t know about crab abundance and mortality, and a new factor that may help explain some of the variation.
