WDFW Rule Proposal Recommendation

Not Recommended for further consideration     Reference ID: DFW563242

Crab rules were recently changed and so are unlikely to be revised unless there is a conservation concern. Currently, evidence does not support that there are enough rockfish, and we are trying to conserve the ESA listed rockfish species, as well. At this time, we don't have assessment data for lingcod that indicates that the fishery can sustain a two fish limit.
