Maryland designated the blue crab (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun) as the official state crustacean in 1989. Its scientific name translates as "beautiful swimmer that is savory." The name also honors Mary Jane Rathbun, the scientist who described the species in 1896. The blue crab is native to the western edge of the Atlantic Ocean from Nova Scotia to Argentina and the Chesapeake Bay is famous for its blue crabs.  http://www.statesymbolsusa.org/
