That's a keeper.
I wonder if the bluecrab northern range can or will spread further north. Heading around and up the ocean side of the Cape seems unlikely due to the salty open ocean water, but why aren't the crabs headed up the canal (under the Bourne and Sagamore bridges)? We know there are crabs in the Marian/Wareham/Buzzard's bay area, so it would make sense that there should be crabs in the lower part of the canal? And once the crabs made it into the bay side of the Cape, they could probably live year round at Sandy Neck, Plymouth or Duxbury or even further north? Boston Harbor?
Now maybe this can happen naturally if we have a couple more warm winters? Or perhaps we can 'introduce' blue crabs to the bay side? I'm not for playing mother nature, but if New England is to become the new North Carolina (global warming) anyway, it's inevitable?
Would be great if I could just crab in Southie! (instead of having to travel to Southern MA and CT)
I see blue crabs pulled through the ditch all the time by the current....They get trapped in the current and end up down in sandwich..I have seen a half a dozen in a single night sometimes..nothing has ever come of it...........This already would of happened if it was in the cards........
