Recording: Florida Stone Crab Webinar

Did you know that it IS legal to remove both claws of a stone crab if they both meet the minimum size limit of 2 3/4 inches?
Want to know more?

Today my colleague Dr. Lisa Krimsky, the Miami-Dade Sea Grant Extension Agent and I hosted our sixth session of our Florida Seafood Sustainability and Safety Brown Bag Webinar Series-Florida's Stone Crab Fishery. The goals of today's webinar are:

1. Increase participant's knowledge of the basic biology and ecology of Florida stone crabs
2. Enhance participant's understanding of the trends, importance, and management of the commercial stone crab fishery.
3.Make participants more informed consumers about the purchasing and handling of stone crabs.
