Crab Season Begins Early Promising A Larger Population

Efforts to clean up the Chesapeake Bay seem to be paying off. This year's crab season began early and the population is bigger than it has been in years. Today, we visited Mo's Seafood in Towson to check on the critters and the satisfied customers.

Preparing for a holiday rush, workers at Mo's Seafood got busy early today, seasoning and steaming and doing plenty of sorting.

This year's crab crop is proving to be plentiful. Biologists claim the crab population has rebounded to record levels and a good supply is great for sales.

Wait, 2 or 3 days age there was a shortage of crabs this season, as opposed to an increased population at the beginning of the season! Do they really propagate that quickly? WOW, is all I can say! All we have to do to make 50x the crab population is to stop fishing them for 3 days. They'll be crawling out of the Bay onto land for lack of room underwater! I didn't know managing this fishery was so easy!
