How to stop the Blue Crab Decline


Fishermen are overfishing and it is causing the decline in crabs. From 1998 to now there has been 640 million crabs dead. To stop this they could have a limit on h many crabs they catch.


The government should set laws on crabbing. They should post up signs to say who can crab there. A number on how many you can take and the size. Also a limit on how much you can go there to crab at a certain time period.


If people want to go in the water they have to let the owner know. They can't trespass. Citizens cannot litter, it is only polluting the bay.


The farmers need to be carful with what kind of fertilizers they use around the bay. When they fertilize their land it can get into the bay and create algae.
