Event Details

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.

This talk is part of SERC's "Science and History on the Bay" winter evening lecture series. Lectures start at 7pm; light refreshments at 6:30. Free and open to all!
