Scientists Want You To Do Everyone A Favor And Eat These Crabs

There’s a certain type of crab that’s eating up more desirable seafood off the New England coast. The crab’s population could be thinned if commercial fishing operations harvested the darn things, but there’s no money in it. The solution? Figure out a way to make people want these crabs on their dinner plates.

A whole article to try to make a "certain crab" popular and no mention of its name.

But the last sentence says it's green.

I will NOT.

I will only eat Maryland Blue Crabs when the media tells me they are plentiful AND only on holidays. See, the same exact crabs are much cheaper during non-holidays (yucky), but I want to pay the most on Memorial, 4th of July and Labor day - because I'm told so by the media.

Likewise, in the offseason I will buy the canned Maryland (STYLE) Blue Crab meat from foreign countries - again because I'm told to do so by the media.

Can't be worse than that Indonesia canned crabmeat.

In Thailand, sand crabs are very popular there, deep fried as a snack. They are the same sand crabs you find by the ocean if you dig in the sand for this.
