Time to report crab catches

With all Puget Sound marine areas now closed to recreational crab fishing, sport crabbers will have through Feb. 1 to report their results for the winter season.

State fishing rules require that all sport crabbers licensed to fish for Dungeness crab in the Sound report the results on their winter Catch Record Card to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“The reports are essential to managing this important fishery,” state shellfish biologist Don Velasquez said. “They are required for all crabbers with a winter crab Catch Record Card, whether or not they caught any crab during the winter season.”

Sport crabbers who fail to submit a winter catch report may receive a $10 fine when they purchase their 2019 crab endorsement.

The department’s online reporting system is available through Feb. 1 at Crabbers also may send their catch record cards to WDFW by mail to: WDFW CRC Unit, PO Box 43142, Olympia, WA 98504-3142.
