The Chesapeake blue crab has long been part of Maryland's identity. But the watermen who pull these crabs from the depths of the Bay say it's almost impossible to make a living at their trade these days. So some of them have formed the Blue Crab Design Team, to come up with a solution. Bryan Russo attends one of their monthly meetings on the Eastern Shore, and brings us the waterman's perspective on an iconic way of life.
