Smaller members of the food web in the Gulf

I've been worried about crabs and other smaller creatures in the gulf. Was anyone doing anything to preserve them?  The shore birds can't come back if there is no food for them?  Can these things be spawn as they do in fish hatcheries? Can we get the fish hatcheries that now mostly breed fish for sport fishing and our food industry be converted to these now vital residents of the gulf? What about the live bait industry?

Today NBC had a report with Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute that didn't answer all my questions, but did mention the issue with the smaller creatures in the chain and that they were producing fish and coral for restocking.
