The deadline to report summer Dungeness sport crab catch record information is due by Saturday, Oct. 1 whether or not you caught crab.
All sport fishers licensed to fish for Dungeness crab anywhere in Puget Sound are required to submit summer catch reports., which play a major role in determining how much crab is still available for harvest during the winter season.
Crabbers can submit catch record cards online at the state Fish and Wildlife website.
Crabbers who fail to file their catch reports on time will face a $10 fine when they purchase a 2012 Puget Sound crab endorsement.
Winter Dungeness crab seasons will be announced by the end of next week.
