Creature Comforts | Blue Crab Traps

The blue crab is a highly sought-after shellfish but derelict traps can be a major strain on the coast and cause more than environmental problems. Today we welcome Eric Sparks and Alyssa Rodolfich from the Mississippi State University, Coastal Research & Extension Center to talk about the blue crab and how the Derelict Trap Reward Program is helping the coast with this unique problem. Also, Libby talks about the yellow-bellied sapsuckers she is seeing and Dr. Mjaure answers a few pet questions to start the show.
