Biologists and watermen are teaming-up to take random samples of crabs in the Chesapeake Bay to get a more accurate reflection of their population.
Teams from Maryland and Virginia hope to have surveyed
15-hundred random Chesapeake Bay sites by mid-February. Biologists believe winter is the best time to get an accurate count since the crabs are hunkered down and moving around less. The teams log each crab's size, weight and gender for analysis, as well as the salinity, depth and temperature of the water where they found the sample.
Since 1990 Maryland and Virginia have been using the Blue Crab Winter Dredge Survey to measure the health of the Chesapeake Bay.

I'm a fisheries biologist from Texas, looking for info on length-weight relationships for blue crabs.  Can you please send any results from this study, or contact information on researchers?

Thank you,

Crabbing, enjoying the water, meeting new people, making new friends, that's what it's all about.
