The summer commercial fishery, which accounts for the majority of the catch, reached a peak in the late 1970s at a little over 2.9 million pounds retained catch. Retained catches since 1982 have been below 0.5 million pounds, averaging 0.3 million po... crab population rebounded, retained catches have increased somewhat to around 0.4 million pounds in recent years Data and assessment methodology Four types of surveys have occurred periodically during the last three decades: summer trawl, summer pot, winter pot, and preseason summer pot, but none of these surveys have been conducted every year. To improve abundance estimates, a male-only length-based model of male crab abundance was previously developed that combines multiple sources o... 06/02/2014 08:00 AM AKDT

(c) Consider the timing of submission of the Council's report to Congress on rationalization of the BSAI crab fisheries. BACKGROUND At its June 2001 meeting, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) adopted a suite of alternatives, elements and options for analysis of a rationalization program for the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) crab fisheries. After a status report and pre-initial review at its December 2001 meeting, the Council amende... crab rationalization alternatives would be scheduled for the April 2002 Council meeting. ~ The proposed action would develop an IFQ or cooperative program to manage the BSAI crab fisheries. A change in management from the current License Limitation Program (LLP) may be necessary to alleviate problems of resource conservation, bycatch and handling mortality, excessive harvesting capacity, lack of economic stability, and safety that have arisen because of the race to fish that has occurred LL... 02/06/2002 08:00 AM AKST

The Pribilof Islands blue king crab fishery began in 1973, with peak landings of 4,990 t (11.0 million lb) during the 1980/81 season. A steep decline in landings occurred after the 1980/81 season.

Subsequently, Amendment 43 to the King and Tanner Crab FMP and Amendment 103 to the BSAI Groundfish FMP were approved by the Secretary of Commerce in 2014. This action, a revised rebuilding plan, closed the Pribilof Island Habitat Conservation Zone to Pacific cod pot fishing, which accounts for the highest recent rates of bycatch of this stock.

In light of the steep decline in abundance of female red king crab observed by the 2021 Eastern Bering Sea (EBS) trawl survey and subsequent closure of the directed red king crab fishery, we are asking for limited, short-term emergency action to be implemented by January 20, 2022, to expand the Red King Crab Savings Area (RKCSA) closure to bottom trawling to protect female Bristol Bay red king crab (BBRKC). The requested expansion is narrowly targeted, ... crab were recently observed in the annual trawl survey. Combined with closure of the directed fishery and other voluntary industry actions, this requested action is expected to provide immediate conservation benefits to the stock and reduce the potential of a continued closure of the directed crab fishery next fall.
