ABSTRACT Impingement samples collected at four electric generating stations in Philadelphia in 1976 contained blue crabs, Callinectes sapidus, previously unreported from the tidal freshwater Delaware and Schuylkill rivers. Specimens were collected in the spring and fall in the Delaware River, but were absent during July, August, and most of September when dissolved oxygen (DO) was lowest. Low DO may have excluded crabs from the Delaware River during the summer; specimens were collected throughout the summer in the Schuylkill River where minimum observed DO was higher than in the Delaware.
