We were on a mission this year to find horseshoe crabs spawning on the beaches that make up the north shore of Boston during the full moon cycle. Unfortunately, we came up short. The north shore is still in recovery mode after years of using horseshoe crabs as bait. We’re happy to report that horseshoe crab spottings have become way more frequent than in the not so distant past on the north shore. So while the north shore of Boston continues to recover its once plentiful horseshoe crab population, enjoy these photos from the ERDG in Delaware. We hope that soon we can report sightings like these at our own beaches just north of Boston.
