It would be late for me anyway   I have eaten tons of crab and striper for over half a century

    I did have my endocrinologist about 15 years ago tell me crabs were fine to eat    but  the secret was   no butter    now I love butter   but changed and just put tons of spices on the crabs

I have a steadfast rule, and I stick to it. I NEVER..under any circumstances, eat crabs without drinking lots of beer. The alcohol in the beer sterilizes everything so I don't worry about no stinking carcinogens.

Mercury is most likely to be found in top of the food chain predators such as tuna, shark etc.  The idea that mercury could be found in a scavenger (like a crab), while possible, is not going to dissuade me from the benefits and joy of eating it.  

If there was truly an issue then all of Maryland would be depopulated now with mercury poisoning.   Roll Eyes  Of course this argument isn't scientific but as most posters have stated - everything in moderation. 

That all stated- I would not risk trying to catch a crab in areas where the state says it's not safe to.

I have eaten a lot of crabs for a long time.  I don't know about the mercury stuff,   but I seem to always know what the temperature is.

Everything in moderation and think of all the excersize you get while working the boat. My feelings is that if one you don't eat a bad crab your probably ok.  Most people have issues with the butter/ salt in the seasoning. Penguins have been found with lead contamintion.... we're doomed anyway you slice it. Just try not to make it worse.... Also my thinking that blue crab spice might speed up the metablism and help you loose weight! That and if you cook your crab peel it day one and day two make crab soup then your getting vegitables too...

That would be next to zero..... Undecided  Lots of crabbers have heart attacks cause they think they are getting great exercise everyday when they are getting almost zero.  Me included....  Sad

"It is recommended that you exercise within 55 to 85 percent of your maximum heart rate for at least 20 to 30 minutes".... Pulling pots, traps, or running a trotline doesn't come close. Here's a good link to see what your heart rate should be -> http://walking.about.com/cs/calories/l/blcalcheartrate.htm
