Did you know the scientific name for blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, means “savory beautiful swimmer”? The blue crab fishery is one of the top fisheries in Georgia. Learn all about these amazing animals during a virtual crabbing lesson with educators from UGA Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant. Highlights include instructions for setting up your own crabbing gear and a Q & A with fisheries extension agent and associate director of marine extension Bryan Fluech. This program is open to all ages but designed for teenagers and adults. Adult supervision required.
This virtual program is free and open to the public but pre-registration is required. You will then receive an email with information on how to access the Zoom meeting. Contact Kayla Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
