2017 & 2018 Recreational Crabbing Outreach
Crabbers can be on the lookout for volunteers with the Clallam County Marine Resources Committees at your local boat launches during the summer of crabbing season. They will be providing educational materials, gauges for measuring your catch, and are available to discuss how to correctly set your crab pot so you can catch more crab. Crabbers may also find these educational materials while purchasing crab licenses and gear at local retailers. Our goal is zero lost crab pots in Puget Sound and for everyone to have a successful day on the water.
In 2016 the Northwest Strait Foundations supported by a large advisory committee developed a prevention plan for lost crab pots in Puget Sound.
