    Blue Crab

    Blue crabs are common in all of Florida's coastal waters. In 1860, William Stimpson, a
    taxonomist who admired the coloration of these crabs, named the group that includes blue
    crabs Callinectes, meaning "beautiful swimmer."

    This publication discusses the blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, and includes information on
    appearance, including how to distinguish males from females, distribution and habitat,
    reproduction, molting, feeding, parasites and diseases, and similar species found in Florida
    waters.
