A sense of belonging. A desire for civility. Both seem necessary for a welcoming and respectful society. But what happens when these ideas backfire?

State officials are ending the commercial crabbing season early this year in Maryland and Virginia. The move comes in response to a study that found a decrease in blue crab populations in the Chesapeake Bay. This winter saw a drop of nearly 100 million crabs in the Bay compared to last winter, and the number of juvenile crabs are half of what they were. How much of an impact will the crabbing restrictions have on the dwindling crab populations? We explore the issues and the perspectives of crabbers who rely on the Bay for their livelihood.
