the web address redirects to https://bluecrab.usm.edu/ looks like they're tagging and releasing crabs all along the gulf coast from texas to florida. guessing it's a similar project to the one hat was done up in the chesapeake bay... cool catch!

One of the researchers running the study has posted several times here. This is the first post I have seen of a tagged crab that has caught. They will appreciate you contacting them.

Thanks

tag looks really clean so it seems logical that it was only in the water for 3 months.
