Waterman Unhappy Over Crab Harvest And Prices

Watermen are complaining new harvest limits on female crabs could cost Maryland’s crab industry upwards of $20-million a year. The new harvest limits include closing the season two months early on October 23rd and outlawing summer recreational crabbing to reduce the female harvest by 34-percent. Crabbers say they have crabs from the good summer harvest, but no one is buying at current prices.
