Water Use in Florida, 2005 and Trends 1950-2005

Has regulation or nature fueled rebound of crabs?
Maryland officials in April forecast the comeback of the blue crab, attributing it to better management practices they hope will be reflected in a similar restoration plan for Chesapeake Bay oysters.

It's possibly as good a year in 55 years" of crabbing, Chesapeake ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
