Crabbing Season has Begun in New Jersey

Real Estate Agent with I am a licensed referral agent in NJ

"The blue crab is known to scientists as Callinectes sapidus (kal i nek' tes sap' i dus). The literal translation of this Latin name is the beautiful (calli) swimmer (nectes) that is savory (sapidus). The blue crab certainly lives up to its name with brilliant blends of olive-green, blue and red, the ability to dart swiftly through the water and a body of delicate, white meat" so stated NJDEP of Fish & Wildlife.

This is the crab that lives in the waters of New Jersey. You can find them in lagoons, under bridges, off your boat, almost anywere there is tidal waters. Some of the best areas are the Barnaget Bay, Tuckerton and Toms River.

You do not need a licease if it is for recreational crabbing and not for commerical. Remember if you are renting a boat in the state of NJ, you must have a valid NJ Boating License.

This is a great activity for all, for both the young and the old. My in laws, use to take my children out on a Platoon boat in Barnegat Bay near the LBI Causeway to go crabbing and years later my children still talk about how much fun they had and how they want their Grandfather and I to take their children.

Enjoy your crabbing, and you just might see me around Barnaget Bay, not crabbing, but snapping some pictures as the children are so excited when they catch their first crab.
