A bin holding hundreds of pounds of freshly steamed crabs cools off for processing at the A.E. Phillips, Inc., plant in Fishing Creek, MD, July 22, 2010. The plant is the original A.E. Phillips & Son location on Hoopers Island, in rural Maryland between the Honga River and the Chesapeake Bay. A prominent producer and processor of seafood, Maryland is a national leader in supplying blue crabs and soft clams. The Chesapeake Bay provides 50 percent of the total blue crab harvest in the United States. Each year, the Maryland seafood industry contributes some USD 400 million to the State's economy. Annual commercial landings have averaged 38.7 million pounds since 2000. (Photo by: ROD LAMKEY JR/AFP/Getty Images)
