   The Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC)
Tuesday refused to rescind action closing the female
crab season five weeks early, despite the pleas of approx-
imately 50 watermen who urged reconsideration.
   The vote on the issue was 4-4. Commission Chair-
man Steven G. Bowman broke the tie.
   Irene Eskridge, wife of Tangier Mayor James
(Ookar) Eskridge, said the watermen traveled the
rough waters of the Chesapeake Bay to ask for a two-
week extension of the female crab season. “They were
desperate. They were willing to take anything,” she
said. “But they gave them nothing. It’s a scary time. We
don’t know what we’re going to do.”
   Regulations enacted last spring prevailed “in order to
rebuild a crab population at scientifically proven danger-
ously low levels,” according to the VMRC’s Web site.
   John Bull, director of public relations for the VMRC,
said, “Data show the total numbers have dropped by
70 percent. That’s an alarming drop. That’s screaming
for action. We did what was required to continue the
blue crab species. We wish we didn’t have to do this.”
   “It seems we’re getting a bad rap on this,” said water-
man Dean Dise, also of Tangier Island. “They voted not
to allow us to work. There are a lot of crabs around.”
   Dise, 49, has worked on the water for most of his life.
