I see that on paper blue crab landings fell significantly in north carolina last year ...... is it because effort has decreased or is it like the chesapeake and the population has fallen off a cliff ?

decline in crabbers very slight as compared to pre 2010, crab numbers have dropped, but could be various of factors, bad water, too much salt too much fresh, pesticides from farming run off, heat. Too many probabilities.

Spring crabbing last year (2013) was a total complete joke.  The fall before we were catching a decent amount of crabs when Sandy went by, after that it pretty much dried up.  Once we got past the spring crabbing was decent, nothing spectacular, but "normal" numbers.  I think much of the lack of landings came from a slack spring.
