I'm sure the only people who see any money from this will be the People running the True Blue Program... Wink

When it comes to money, the people that protest the loudest, usually have the most to lose.Wink

There has been a lot of research (I know that's a dirty word here :-) ) has been done. Most jimmies stay within a mile of their release site after tagging.  HOWEVER, storms and Spring tides can and do move them great distances. 

"After the females mate and migrate to spawning areas, they either remain there for the rest of their lives or move only short distances out to sea. In warmer months, males generally stay in low-salinity waters such as creeks, rivers, and upper estuaries. Research on blue crabs in the Chesapeake Bay indicated that females over-wintered at the mouth of the bay and spawned there in spring, whereas the migration of males was non-directional. "

As far as I can find, the only tagging done by SI was done on Sooks only.  (Because 99.999999% of the time they don't shed the tag off). Cool
