During the last several decades, fishing mortality and environmental degradation led to ∼ 70% drop in the bay's blue crab abundance, 84% decline in its spawning stock, and historically low levels of juvenile recruitment as well as nursery habitats being below carrying capacity. This situation makes the Chesapeake Bay blue crab an appropriate… CONTINUE READING
