Save the blue crabs

Pollution is a big problem in the blue crab population. Fertilizers pollute the water and make the algae grow more than it should. The extra algae blocks sunlight so the baby crabs can not get the sunlight they need causing them to die. Over fishing is a big problem too. The fishermen are taking too many crabs out of the bay causing a rapid decrease in the population. If you are a citizen you can try and throw trash away so it does not pollute the water. The government can invest some money into helping clean up the waters and making them better for the blue crab population. Fishermen can stop over fishing the waters and check the percentages they catch so over fishing will not happen. If farmers would stop fertilizing their fields or not fertilize their fields that much it would help a whole lot.
