C.R.A.B.B. Recreational Survey
A team of high school students from MATES are aiming to gather information regarding crabbing trends with the goal of preserving crabbing for generations to come. They are part of the Crabbing Responsibly at Barnegat Bay initiative. This survey will begin with some background information and should take approximately 5-10 minutes. All responses can be kept anonymous.
