Slaughter Beach, Delaware

Slaughter Beach is a small town on the Delaware Bay in Sussex County. The town's population is around 200. Slaughter Beach is believed to be named after a local resident, William Slaughter. Some speculate that it is named because of all of the horseshoe crabs that wash up onto the beach, lay their eggs, and then die. Slaughter Beach is primarily the port for local horseshoe crab harvesting, as well as the harvesting of fish and oysters.

horseshoe crabs are harvested? They don't look really appetizing to me...
