Chesapeake Bay blue crabs can be found in both Maryland and Virginia waters, though some say Maryland crabs taste sweeter. There's reason for that. There's also a reason that when tropical storm Agnes hit the Bay area in 1972, it didn't result in a massive loss of crab larvae that the prevailing theories predicted.
