Feb. 20: Project to Look at Crab Offloading on Fishing Vessels


A new project will evaluate offloading practices aboard crab vessels to ensure fishing companies have efficient and safe procedures in place. The project will provide a comprehensive understanding of the current practices in offloading crab from vessels over 35 feet in length and an assessment of current constraints associated with this sector of the fishery, with an eye toward improving the current offloading processes.
