We had a great day in Cambridge giving the the staff from Oceana a comprehensive tour of Maryland's crabbing industry. We went trot lining with waterman Bill James, took a tour of the picking house at JM Clayton and finished off with a #mdtrueblue lunch at Ocean Odyssey Seafood Restaurant. Great day!

We want to give a special thanks to Jack and Joe Brooks of JM Clayton, Travis Todd of Ocean Odyssey and waterman Bill James for being great hosts and helping us raise awareness about seafood mislabeling/fraud. (4 photos)
