I read a number of post's that mention keeping female crabs. I always thought this would limit future crab numbers...
What am I missing? Huh

At that price I wouldn't bother with them either. Here in MD with a LCC we are only allowed 4 bushel a day. By the way if anyone hasn't tried a fat fall sook you don't know what you are missing, they taste much better than the ones caught earlier in the year.

Yeah  that's selling to the dealers.. rough year for sure..
I grew up &  live in Baltimore and crab on the ES... Down in the lower Fla. Keys I'm  involved in a boat rental business..
down there it's all about the lobsters and stone crabs... As for me you can have them.. nothing like a bluecrab!

It is my understanding that they have eggs once after that why not catch them,they're only gonna eat smaller crabs thereby hurting the population

Not true...
"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. Research at the University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute (UMBI) Center of Marine Biology (COMB) has shown that Chesapeake Bay females were very capable of spawning five or more times,"

Twenty years ago this time of the year, Females, #2's and Whites were $4 - $6 a bushel if you sold to a wholesale buyer. You were on a 2 - 3 bushel limit of #1's per day, IF you were a regular. Otherwise, they wouldn't buy from you at all. Everything changes based on the availability of the product.
