Beautiful Swimmers Revisited

On the 40th anniversary of "Beautiful Swimmers," William Warner's 1976 classic book about the Blue Crab, filmmaker Sandy Cannon-Brown teams up with Chesapeake Bay environmental writer Tom Horton to see how crabs are faring in the bay. Today's Chesapeake is not the same bay in which Warner conducted his inquiries of Callinectes sapidus, the iconic blue crab, in the 1960s and 1970s. Yet much remains.
