A better way to manage the crab harvest - Good science and good data can restore the Chesapeake Bay's blue crab population and help the watermen who depend on it
Staff quoted: Tom Miller
Article Link Permanent Link

It's been five years since the Chesapeake Bay blue crab fishery was declared a disaster, and despite progress using science-based guidelines for protecting female crabs, the iconic Chesapeake crustacean is still not out of the woods. The Baltimore Sun's call for management change ("Blue outlook for blue crabs," Sept. 18) hits the mark; the bay's blue crab needs better management based on baywide total catch limits, allocations among the states and licensed fishermen and much greater accountability for all blue crab harvesting.

Staff quoted: David Secor, Tom Miller
Article Link Permanent Link

David Secor keeps a collection of ear bones. The inner-ear appendages, called otoliths, are tucked away on a shelf in his laboratory in Solomons, Maryland. He has samples from bluefin tuna, white perch, and a dozen other fish species. There's even one from the largest striped bass ever caught in the state. But right now, he's holding an otolith taken from a golden tilefish. It's white and about the size and shape of a small seashell.
