RE: Where are all the crab?

Ms. Dahl, your empty pot story triggers a sea story told to me
by a co-worker. He said, and I believe it was last hunting season,
after dropping some pots in the Helm Bay area; they kept getting
undersized crab with pinchers removed, lots of them! There may
be a market for pincher/claws or we may have local crab suffering
from some self mutilation syndrome.
My co-worker is 50ish and lived here his whole life; he had never
seen such a thing. After reporting to Fin and Feather the facts,
and expressing a theory of a humans shaking those crabs back
in the bay minus the pinchers, he was told they could not act
upon this theory without 8 by 10 glossy photos of a human actually
doing such a thing.
One thing is for sure, whether those crabs were self mutilating
themselves due to a perfect body image or humans pulled the claws,
those crab had a difficult time feeding themselves since his
sea story. My co-worker is often times just full of crab-p any
way. Thought I would share this with you.
