Link to winter dredge survey

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources today released the 2015 Blue Crab Winter Dredge Survey results, which showed the abundance of spawning-age females was 101 million, a substantial rise from 2014 when adult females were considered depleted. Despite the increase, the number of adult females remains well below the peak abundances observed in 2010 and 2011 and below the established target level of 215 million crabs.



Juvenile crabs increased 35 percent from 2014, and more than doubled from the record low in 2013.  The 2015 juvenile abundance of 269 million crabs is just above the 26 year average of 261 million.  The total abundance of crabs which include juveniles, and adult males and females was approximately 411 million. The crabbing harvest remained at a safe level for the seventh consecutive year

Better news then last year. So hopefully the crabbing will be better for a lot of people that did not do well last year. Hoping for some nice weather to warm up the water.
