The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is revisiting discussions on blue crabs, this time focusing on the containers. A public hearing is scheduled later this week to clarify regulations before any formal proposals are considered. The primary topic of discussion revolves around the use of plastic lugs, which have the capacity to hold significantly more crabs than traditional wooden bushel baskets.
