WDFW Commission vote on Dungennes Crab policy

Today the WDFW Commission vote 7-2 to adopt Option A. The Commission made minor modifications to Option A to underscore the need for better reporting, enforcement and education effects to increase reporting.

This is the option that gives the recreational crab fisherman more of the Puget Sound crab allocation. What this means is that we will have longer seasons and more opportunity to harvest.

It is important to mention that the Department and Commission will be asking the recreational community and sportsfishing groups to step up with education efforts to improve reporting and compliance.
