Pounds of Oysters and Crabs Harvested Graph

Analyze the graph with students. Relate the patterns shown in the graph with what was described in the video - “crabs were not popular in the past until refrigeration technology advanced, so that crabs would spoil less and could be transported easily.” Further, have students interpret the trends in oyster harvesting.
