I found a tagged horseshoe crab, what should I do?
The Maryland Fishery Resources Office has been coordinating a coast-wide tagging program for horseshoe crabs since 1999. Crabs have been tagged by researchers and biomedical companies conducting numerous studies on horseshoe crabs along the Atlantic Coast. If you find a tagged horseshoe crab you can report your findings on their website and find out where the crab was tagged!
