Pollution has been a major factor in the decline of the Chesapeake Bay's blue crab population, according to a new report from the CBF. The report, [a] comprehensive assessment of pollution's impact on this Chesapeake Bay icon, was developed from interviews with 12 leading crab researchers and water quality experts, as well as federal government data and scientific papers. The Bay's blue crab population has plummeted from 791 million in 1990 to 260 million in 2007.
