When I was out crabbing yesterday, I stopped at a local store to get some water.  Across the street is a canal that loops into the ocean and there is a small dock that people can use to dock.  Very often they clean there fish and toss the remains in the canal.  I walked down and took a look over the dock into the water and it was loaded with the remains of many blue fish and what appeared to be crabs everywhere.  I went back to the car got my net.  I then realized non of the crabs were moving.  I put my net down and no life at all.  There had to be 30 to 40 good size crabs all dead.  It looks like they were eating what was left of the blues and died. 

I hate to think some type of poison or toxins

any thoughts

I was told by a comm on the chester last year that a crab will move on after they are full dont know if it is true??? It might have also been dumped there dead by a crabber or crabbers???

I scooped a few up and they looked to be fine, not damage.  As stated they could have been caught in a trap, died and tossed with the blues.   When I was crabbing in the canal last week I came across a pot with a few dead ones in it.
