Winter Dungeness crab fishery ends after Tuesday

WebYuasaCrab

The winter Dungeness crab fishery is winding closing at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31, and going out on a high note for those heading out onto the open marine waterways of Puget Sound.

Anglers must file their catch reports for the winter season to state Fish and Wildlife by Feb. 1, and this include everyone whether or not you caught crabs or even headed out on the water. Those who don’t will be fined $1 when they purchase their 2014 crab license.

Send catch record cards to WDFW CRC Unit, 600 Capitol Way N., Olympia, WA 98501-1091 or online from Jan. 1 to Feb. 1 at https://fishhunt.dfw.wa.gov/wdfw/puget_sound_crab_catch.html.
