Citizens can help out in ways to prevent the decline of blue crabs, in ways such as stop pollution & gas leaking into water ways. Fertilization is another effect on blue crabs, so if citizens decreased fertilization use it could increase the blue crab population.


Fishermen can decrease the amount they fish in order to increase the population of blue crab.


In order for the government to help increase the blue crab population they should decrease places for crabbing.


The use of fertilization that the farmers use are harming the population of blue crabs. the fertilization is getting in to the water and the crabs breath it In and die.
