Shark River Horseshoe Crab Tagging in Neptune

Here are more fun activities in Neptune, New Jersey.

  • As of May 7, 2024, these are the details that have been released about this event.

Shark River Horseshoe Crab Tagging

Horseshoe crab tagging will resume in the Shark River estuary!

​Volunteers must be trained and learn about the biology and importance of horseshoe crabs prior to tagging live crabs.

Tagging and monitoring crabs helps provide information on population trends and crab movement, which provides a small window into the health of an important and ancient species. The spawning season of the Horseshoe Crab is the only time they come ashore and the season is just a few short weeks in May and June. Data from the work is provided to the US Fish and Wildlife Service.

Volunteers should dress to get wet, have a change of clothes, bug spray, and flashlights or head lamps. A limited amount of chest waders, drills, and 2 5/32 bits can be provided. A tagging packet containing data sheets, pens, ruler or measuring board, clipboard, health and safety form, tags, informational packets, and a membership brochure will be provided.
