June: For Soft-Crabbers, Summer Is a Busy Season

During a 24- to 30-month life span, a blue crab will molt over 20 times. What goes on inside the animal to trigger the shedding of it's entire shell? And what does it mean for the crab, and for the crabbers who do business in soft crabs? John Page Williams sheds light on both the human and critter stories.

Please rate and review, it really helps us to spread these seasonal stories to new listeners.
