Blue King Crab
There are several opportunities for direct public involvement in management of blue king crab fisheries. You can get involved by attending the regular meetings of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council. Users can testify in person or in writing at NPFMC meetings. In addition, stakeholders may review and submit written comments to the National Marine Fisheries Service on proposed rules published in the Federal Register. Users can also get involved with crab management through the state’s Board of Fisheries process.
