Wrong. Females can produce several broods from one mating. Here's some information: "Although a female will mate only once, she will produce many fertilized egg masses during her lifetime from this single mating. Studies in Florida found that some female crabs produce as many as seven broods (sponges) in one year from a single mating, and up to 18 broods over 2-2 years. Cheesy  http://www.bluecrab.info/spawning.html

Even so, in the opinion of many experts (self included Grin ), limiting the harvest of females is not the critical issue in blue crab population management.

That circumstance was infinitely preferable to that in which many here find themselves; that is, they know virtually nothing about blue crabs even after 40 years in their vicinity (e.g., see four posts back).

LP,
According to several articles (and maybe some opinion tossed in for good measure) posted on BCA over the last year+, the female crab is capable of producing broods again and again, but since they only mate once they tend to run out of viable sperm rather quickly.

That belief, combined with southern migration tendencies of fertile female crabs has led to the conclusion that the 6.5-7+ female crabs you find in large numbers in the northern bay during fall really don't have much (if any) reproductive potential left.

I always thought that after they drop their eggs they were done. Now that I know Ill no longer keep females besides not being able to because of the law.

you are right in a sense. It depends on how many broods she has already produced in her short lifetime. Point would be not to ban mature females, but to protect or ban the sponges, sponges of any color stage Smiley
