I'm considering making some trips closer to where I'm living now, but in doing some research there seems to be serious questions about the water quality and as a result the safeness of eating anything that comes from the area.

So those of you who crab these two rivers. Does the water quality and the NJ eating recommendations concern you at all?

After doing some reading and seeing those undercooked crabs in the report forums I kinda wanna barf.

If you are leary of eating the crabs, I would be more than happy to take whatever you catch off your hands... Free of charge.. Smiley

I guess, while water quality in any area I fish or swim in definitely crosses my mind, my bigger concern about these rivers is watching out for the knuckleheads who decide to have a boat race right near you or pull a skier through your boat. But I think that is anywhere, as is any pollution. I love the Shrews, so I am sure I will continue to fish/crab it.

If there was an issue, the DEP would be all over it.   You're good.

The eating recommendation for crabs out of the tidal tribs of the Raritan Bay is 7 crabs a month. But further along in the document is list the Shrews and Nav and only list one or two species with restrictions.

7 crabs is a snack lol

SIMPLE.... if leery just go elsewhere.  Someone talking you into doing something is never a good idea.  And lots of people have different opinions.

I didn't know whether to be leery or not. Just getting some opinions. I would have never thought twice until I saw someone on another board talking about the water quality in the rivers.
