Chesapeake blue crabs are crustaceans found along the Atlantic Coast, ranging from Nova Scotia to Argentina, as well as around the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. They are characterized as a very popular seafood species, believed to support the second largest commercial crab fishery in the world. Known for its population decline in the last decades, Chesapeake crab seems to repopulate the Chesapeake Bay increasing to a total of 764 million crabs this year.
