Dungeness Crab (Cancer magister)

Dungeness crab (Cancer magister) is one of the most important shellfisheries (both commercially and recreationally) in Puget Sound. Puget Sound is divided into 6 crustacean management regions, with the Jamestown Tribe participating in Regions 1, 2 West, 3, and 5. The crab fishery is managed to protect softshell males and females and is based upon all males greater than a carapace width of 6.25 inches. It is believed that this size ensures that the males have the opportunity to reproduce at least once prior to entering the fishery. There is a projected harvestable amount specified prior to the season. The amount can be modified (higher or lower) based upon additional information collected during the season.
Jamestown and WDFW staff jointly conduct test fisheries to determine appropriate openings and closings and to collect data on crab molting. Harvest during periods of soft-shell conditions can increase the mortality of soft crab, decreasing future abundance. The commercial crab fishery is conducted using crab pots with escape rings for undersized crab and rot cord for conservation measures. The State recreational fishery also utilizes ring nets, wading and other methods
