So I'm sure this is covered here and probably more than once. Just curious what if any health advisories there are for the young and pregnant ones when it comes to eating blue crabs. I live in Massachusetts and I know it's different strokes for different folks depending where your catch is coming from. Just curious. Thanks..

. Thanks ya it's very vague and I've been eating it for years myself. It's my children that I worry about. There's no real way of knowing for sure so I limit the meals for them. You'd think they would do more testing in our waters with more updates. I think because the blue crab isn't sought after as much in the northeast as clams and othe types of shellfish they don't do much if any testing..

manwithcrabs - i like the userhandle name...ha ha.

unless you are catching your crabs in "Springfield" (see pic below) or similar...i don't think there is too much concern on blue crab consumption.  Obviously moderation is key in anything.
