The Strange and Wonderful Science of Blue Crabs

February 6, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Speaker: Tuck Hines, SERC director and marine biologist

When it comes to popularity, few species in the Chesapeake can compete with blue crabs, or Callinectes sapidus, the “savory, beautiful swimmers” of the Bay. But their biology is woven with stories just as rich as their meat, and stranger. Join Tuck Hines, SERC director and blue crab biologist, for an in-depth look at what we’ve learned about the life cycle of blue crabs, and the weird science behind the discoveries. He’ll also provide an update on the challenges of sustaining the fishery.
