Just saw this article today, not sure if anyone else has seen this yet. After reading the article seems like they have the problem we want, an over abundance of crabs.  laugh laugh Maybe some forum members can fly over there and show them how to catch and eat them like we do to help control their population.

All they need is a Conowingo dam and to put DNR in charge of their fishery and the crabs would disappear.

Mucho dinero por favor.

Will not be long till the crabs are smaller in population, LOL. Don't need the DNR or the Dam, the crabs are making folks money, just like here in the USA.



Barberá and Balagué both agree that eradication is not an option and that intensive fishing is the only way to control the species, one of several that have invaded the region in recent years.

In the Ebro Delta they are catching about one tonne of crabs every day, according to Balagué. In 2018 they netted 53 tonnes with a value of €136,000. In January of this year alone they landed 12 tonnes, more than the total catch for 2017.

“Even though we’re catching close to a tonne a day, the price is stable and in fact higher than last year,” he says. The crab is becoming more popular, especially in paella and other rice dishes – the signature dishes of the delta and Valencia where most of the crabs are found.

So, is the blue crab a curse or a blessing? “The crab is here, conditions for its success are very good,” says Balagué. “It has become another resource and there’s a market for it so it’s profitable for fishermen. As fishermen we have to adapt and make the most of what we can get.”

 The reason for the blue crab population being low here is not mainly overharvest but is due to pollution and the ches. bay being so dirty.
