Thank you for your participation in the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center’s blue crab research program. Our blue crab tracking studies focus on understanding habitat use and crab migrations, as well as better understanding fishery dynamics.

Our blue crab tags consist of 1"x 2" pieces of hard pink plastic attached to the back of the crab with stainless steel wire wound around the spines. High-reward tags ($50) are marked accordingly on both sides of the tag.
