Dramatic Crab Populations

"The number of blue crabs in the Chesapeake Bay has tripled over the last five years to the highest total in nearly two decades. The dramatic rebound was caused by restrictions on catching female crabs imposed by Virginia and Maryland in 2008, according to Maryland fisheries scientists."

Wonderful, wonderful news! You can read the whole article on the Bay Daily.

Seeing news like this makes me hope that even more restaurants will choose to serve local crabs. Click here to see my recent posting about the True Blue initiative.

I'm so happy to see that efforts to save the Bay are working. However, the Chesapeake Bay recently received a D plus rating so we still have a ways to go.
