spawnactimg_bottEach May and June, the shores of the Delaware Bay play host to thousands of spawning horseshoe crabs.  In this time frame, on 12 nights coinciding with the new and full moon phases, the yearly Delaware Bay horseshoe crab survey is conducted.  All systematic counts are taken in or near darkness at high tides along the beaches of New Jersey and Delaware.
