A recent article on a Baltimore tradition, "Crabs and spaghetti in Crabtown" (Oct. 16), included a recipe that called for a dozen "female" crabs. While it is legal for commercial crabbers to harvest some females (with some restrictions), recreational crabbers are prohibited from catching females and for a very good reason. We should save the crabs, then eat them. Recipes should not, and need not, specify female crabs. The difference in taste between a male and female crab is negligible, but the impact to their survival is large.

My parents grew up about a mile-and-a-half and a cultural universe away from one another in Depression-era southeast Baltimore. Dad was a paperboy in a largely Italian and German section of Highlandtown long ago called "the Hill" and now known as Greektown. Mom, whose mother was a textile worker and the family breadwinner, came from an almost monolithic Polish colony along Boston Street, a neighborhood of broom factories, lumberyards and canneries remembered as "old" Canton. Because it was Baltimore, the neighborhoods had one fundamental cuisine in common: Chesapeake Bay blue crabs, both plentiful and reasonably priced.

Baltimore housing officials have ended a short-lived program to label property inspectors as being in the “shark tank” or “crab barrel” based partly on how many citations they issue to property owners. Eric Booker, the assistant commissioner for code enforcement, announced the new ranking system to inspectors in an Aug. 29 email obtained by The Baltimore Sun. “It will highlight the top inspectors, the 'LEADERS', by category as well as the bottom dwellers, the 'LAGGARDS',” Booker wrote.

Eleven local football players, including six linemen, were added to the roster for the Maryland Crab Bowl after Monday night's second draft. The Baltimore area now has 24 seniors headed to the sixth annual all-star game, which is still scheduled for Dec. 21 but has been moved to McDaniel College in Westminster.  More players will be added at a later date. The game pits the Baltimore area's top seniors against Washington, D.C.'s best. Baltimore won last year, 28-7, but Washington holds a 3-2 edge in the series.

It's been five years since the Chesapeake Bay blue crab fishery was declared a disaster, and despite progress using science-based guidelines for protecting female crabs, the iconic Chesapeake crustacean is still not out of the woods. The Baltimore Sun's call for management change ("Blue outlook for blue crabs," Sept. 18) hits the mark; the bay's blue crab needs better management based on baywide total catch limits, allocations among the states and licensed fishermen and much greater accountability for all blue crab harvesting.

Regarding your editorial " Blue outlook for blue crabs," (Sept. 17), the commercial rockfish/striper group would love to see higher limits set for catching and keeping stripers, so let's blame the lack of crabs on the rockfish so they can increase their catch. Ten or 20 years ago there were far more fish predators in the Chesapeake Bay, and the crab catch was fine. Three or four years ago, the state Department of Natural Resources reduced the limits on the commercial catch of female crabs.
