Blue Crab in Ocean Springs

We went crabbing today and we caught some blue crabs and they are huge. Do you know how to distinguish the male or female blue crab? The trick is to know the common mnemonic and that is to remember that if the abdomen of blue crab looks like the Washington Monument, the crab is male and if like the U.S. Capitol, it is female. Interesting right?
This crustacean is native to the western edge of the Atlantic Ocean specifically from Nova Scotia to Argentina. There are so many natural predators of the blue crab and that include the humans. The eels, drum, Rock Fish, spot, trout, some sharks, and cownose sting rays loves to eat the blue crab.

The blue crab is an omnivore and can consume thin-shelled bivalves, annelids, small fish, plants and nearly any other item they can find. Well, that human waste is no exemption to crabs right? So, better do your crabbing in a clean environment or else, EWWW, LOL.
