Marine scientists and volunteers they recruited recently literally pulled boatloads of derelict crab pots from the depths of a Sussex County river.The steel cages are used by recreational crabbers - but when left behind for too long - they become what some people call “killing machines” - destroying all sorts of sea life.And experts say there are thousands of them littering Delaware waters.Delaware Public Media’s Rebecca Baer joined crews from Delaware Sea Grant and the University of Delaware during their annual effort to round up these “ghost” pots.
