Problem and Solution

The blue crab population is decreasing due to overfishing. This problem is easy to fix but it requires all the fisherman to listen. They need to stop fishing that many crabs. The crabs don't have enough population to repopulate. If they want the crabs to be able to repopulate they need to decrease the amount of crabs they catch in a year.

The Solution

HOW WE CAN HELP

This problem can be fixed if we just stop fishing for a period of time. The fisherman could work on cleaning the water and making it safer for the creatures living there. That would help the environment and the community surrounding it.
