Watermen in Maryland say pollution in the Chesapeake Bay has hurt their industry.
Captain Larry Simms is the president of the Maryland Watermen's Association. He says their ranks have thinned. Pollution in the bay has led the state to restrict when and how watermen get their catch. Simms says the restrictions make it a far less profitable job. He blames a lot of the pollution on untreated sewage from plants along the bay.
Untreated sewage kills off underwater vegetation and oxygen for crabs. Simms says this year's harvest is the worst he's ever seen.
