  1. In Newport I found three large Japanese Shore Crab.
    I put chicken on twine and “fish” for them.

  2. Japanese shore crab
    Black Point Beach, East Lyme, CT

  3. I was down at the beach collecting crabs, when I found a bucket full of these crabs that must be the Japanese Shore Crabs. We looked up online pictures to identify and compared it to the ones we found. It was in a harbor on a rocky beach in Westport, CT.
