So WBOC has had a few articles about how none of the picking houses have workers because of the work visas. While part of me thinks this is sad, I start to think that this may be a product of living and dying by the sword. I think that this industry may have died years ago if it was not for the migrant workers. Now that process has been interrupted and this may be the end for them. Years ago I found that most of the crabmeat that made up a famous crab house's crab meat was from Indonesia and came from a spotted swimming crab and only a small amount was from the Chesapeake. I later went to a buffet that was owned by this company and low and behold these crabs were on the buffet. While this is a proud history of our area I think that maybe this may be the start of the end for several of those business's on the Chesapeake. I guess when you put most of your eggs in one basket this is what happens. I wonder how this will impact the dynamics of crabbing ,the crab market on the shore and will this possibly have a positive impact on the crab populations?
