Rewards for Reporting Tagged Blue Crabs in Chesapeake Bay

Have you seen a crab in Chesapeake Bay wearing a pink tag on its back? If you have, please report the tag to us at the Fish and Invertebrate Ecology Lab at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center. The tags are part of two studies on crab biology, migration, and fisheries. Rewards are $5 or $50 depending on which tag you find. Here's a close-up of the tag showing the information we hope you will record and information about how to report the tags::

Funding for this research was provided by Maryland Sea Grant and NOAA's Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant Program.
