DNR has released the 2022 crab dredge survey results. Someone can post the link. 97,000,000 females, 27,000,000 males and 101000,000 juveniles. Lowest on record but no problem. Female population went from 158,000,000 to 97,000,000. A loss of roughly 1/3 but since the number is above the amount needed there is no concern,. To me this is a crock of ****. We can really get into a debate over this rationale. The numbers have decreased every year since 2008 but there is no reason to reverse the trend. Bull****.
