<< a drag of the seine in the
Little River in Dartmouth. The little River has always turned up lot's
of neat species. Though on this trip we only caught Mummichogs, Blue
Crabs, and Spider Crabs. >>

I've never heard of spider crabs being found in rivers before; was this in a

What other crabs in North America are found in freshwater?
