A very interesting talk; unfortunately it appears to have generated more questions than answered as does most studies.
What I found most interesting was the to be expected increase in female crabs after the restricted take but then the sudden population crash the following year. It would appear there were a number of variables at play regarding the population in an  attempt to regain stasis.

Thanks for posting!

The only thing studies create is money for those who do the studies. Really tell me about the exploitation we have heard all about the changing climate. All BS

One of the studies I recently read explained that it is better to have two trotliners within fifty to seventy five ft. of each other, rather than one all alone, to optimize catch.  Which gos against Maryland fishing rules.
It seems that if there is only one smorgasborg available, crabs get nasty, stop foraging, and start fightin.
Much like two crabbers too close to each other.
What a conundrum.

Keep up the studies, learn something new every day.
