The Dungeness crab is named after one of its representative habitats-a shallow, sandy bay inside of Dungeness Spit on the south shore of the Straits of Juan de Fuca.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has considered requiring commercial Dungeness crab pots. The Dungeness crab (Cancer magister) is the largest edible crab on the west coast of Canada.

It is a highly prized sport and commercial shellfish well familiar to people living along North America’s west coast. In Canada, Dungeness crabs are fished year round, although the period from May to October tends to be the most fruitful for fishermen.

Project End Date: June In order to better understand the derelict fishing gear problem, the NOAA Marine Debris Program has supported research efforts to measure and address the impacts of derelict crab traps in Alaska’s Dungeness crab fisheries. The program funded a two-year study of abandoned Dungeness crab traps, or pots, in Southeast Alaska to determine their abundance and what.
