The good news:

Larger crabs means McCormick & Co. will have to make more Old Bay Seasoning.
More Old Bay Seasoning means more jobs at McCormick & Co.

The bad news:

Rampaging herds of giant killer crabs!!!

It's not only male fish in the Chesapeake that are exhibiting female traits. The male children in the northern latitudes are also becoming feminized. Our modern "convenient" lives with all our pollutions are proving very inconvenient for our's and so many other species.
