Proposed Regulations to Implement Dungeness Crab Trap Limit Program
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
A Dungeness crab trap limit program was passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor in 2011, adding Section 8276.5 to the Fish and Game Code. This program imposes limits on the number of traps that a Dungeness crab vessel permit holder can operate during the commercial season. While the statue outlines the trap limit program, the Department of Fish and Game is authorized by statute to implement the program, which requires new regulations be adopted in Title 14, California Code of Regulations. This proposed project addresses application procedures and fees for biennial trap permits, tags, and replacement tags as well as instances to file for a waiver, retrieve derelict traps, and the appeals process.
