Recreational Crabber Workshop
: Port Angeles Library, Carver Room

Crabbing 101 WORKSHOP

12,000 crab pots are lost in Puget Sound each year. A single lost crab pot without escape cord can kill up to 30 crabs until deterioration. That adds up to 180,000 harvestable crabs lost each year. If you are new to recreational crabbing or want to learn more about how not to lose your pots – and catch more crabs – come to one of our workshops.

Date: June 20, 2019

Time: 6-8 pm

Location: Port Angeles Library (Carver Room)
