The blue crab could be coming back in Delaware.
The harvest is expected to bring in around 4 million pounds.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that’s 1 million pounds over last year’s projection.
The latest projection says that it saw the highest index of juvenile blue crabs the state has seen since the mid-2-thousands.
The News Journal reports that previous winters were extremely cold producing higher mortality rates.
Meanwhile, when it comes to oysters the projections spell trouble.
The quota in 2016 has been set just over 10-thousand.
