FISHERY AND INDUSTRY IMPACTS

Purpose: To develop a better understanding of the interactions between the fishery and Dungeness crab populations.

Research Priorities:

  • Management strategy evaluation (e.g. size limits, timing, etc.)

  • Determining effects of fishing during mating/molt seasons

  • Exploring interactions between management strategies and socioeconomic factors

  • Investigating biotoxin-crab interactions and effects
