Conduct and support collaborative research on crab populations in the Pacific Northwest.
The Pacific Northwest Crab Research Group (PCRG) is a consortium of scientific research partners, resource managers, and community members working to improve our collective understanding of regional crab species. PCRG aims to address multiple critical research gaps to help sustain native crab populations and support fishery manager decision-making through the provision of relevant data.
