What the problem is

The problem with crabbing in the Chesapeake bay is that you can't crab too much or the population will decrease too much, but if we don't do it at all the population will increase too much and the we could have a over population issue. So crabbing is a delicate process that has to be taken seriously.

There are jobs which require people to catch crabs and selling them makes a constant flow of money for the people who live in the city. Farmers who can buy the crabs can use parts of it as a fertilizer for their crops. The government gets a tax from the selling of the crabs so they get paid too. With out taking the crabs population wont be the only thing at steak but our economy along with other things
