Create a Safe & Healthy Environment, and you’ll notice more Jumbo Crabs!

The typical blue crab lives for 3 years and molts its shell routinely to grow larger. Watermen aspire to catch crabs that reach the jumbo status, 6 inches plus, but sometimes its “out of their nets” since environmental conditions have a huge part to play in allowing crabs to grow. With almost a third of the nation’s crabs caught from the Chesapeake Bay, cleaning up the waters will ensure a healthy environment for the blue crab to feast and increase in size. Water quality, seagrass restoration, and a careful eye on “over catching” is an ideal starting point. Healthy waters nurture underwater grass beds, necessary for blue crab larvae and the perfect place for even the mature crabs to hide from predators, like the striped bass, red drum, catfish, and sharks. The thicker the grass, the more crabs that can hide.

Pulling too many crab pots will definitely cause detrimental results across the entire ecosystem. Oysters and other filter feeders won’t ingest blue crab larvae, causing a shortage on mollusks. Striped bass, red drum and other predator fish will lose population with a limited food supply. Most curiously, periwinkles, a humorous name for a snail, won’t serve as a snack for the missing crab and they’ll eat all the marsh grasses, causing disastrous effects! Probably the most catastrophic result of a limited supply of blue crabs will create great heartache for the Blue Crab Lover and the crab feasts planned all over the country. Ensure a healthy environment and you’ll not only have your feast, but also crack and pick jumbos!
