1 Peyton Silver Section 61 Save The Shellfish! 2 Problem 1 What Has Happened In The Past These are buckets of crabs that have already been caught from the Chesapeake Bay. The buckets are so full you can tell people over crab.
People over crabbing.
People polluting the bay from cars oils trash etc.
No crab laws for the amount of crabs you could catch from the bay.
No one did anything about making a law
3 Too many crabs are going from the bay to being cooked and eaten.
Blue crab s declining
Constant harvest pressure on species and the loss of S.A.V.
SAV gets pulled for stuff but crabs need it so the more pulled the less homes for crabs
Bass and people eat crabs
Crabs reduced catches by commercial and recreational crabbers
Algae dies decomposition process uses oxygen in the water to a point where it cant reach aquatic life to survive
Problem 2 What Is Happening Now 4 Data This is a blue crab.

It shows that the number decreases because the more over crabbing the less crabs to catch

Too many crabs and the things that crabs need are being taken out of the bay
Harvest and pollution is killing lots of crabs
Blue Crab Abdomens Catch less crabs!! 6 Solutions / Recommendations

Fishery management planning
Reduced harvest pressure
Bay grass restoration
Reducing nutrient pollution to improve the levels of dissolved oxygen in the summer
More crabs need homes like these and we can help. 7 Personal Action Plan
When I order crabs I will only order the number of crabs I can eat
Join a program to help crabs survive
Adopt a crab and make sure that crab is healthy and happy
Go on strike against the number of crabs being eaten
This is WAY too many crabs. This looks MUCH better. 8 Dont Be Crabby!
