Recreational crab pot fishing extended in Everett area

OLYMPIA—Recreational pot fishing for Dungeness crab in Marine Area 8-2 (Everett area) has been extended until further notice.

The area usually closes from April 16 through July 15 to pot fishing to protect soft shell crabs during the molting period.

This season Marine Area 8-2 reopened to pot fishing April 3 as the molt cycle was completed early. The area will remain open to Dungeness crab pot fishing as long as shell conditions and tribal/non-tribal allocation criteria are met.

Marine Area 8-2 lies east of a line extending from East Point on Whidbey Island to the flashing light immediately north of Lowell Point on Camano Island, and northward of a line extending from Possession Point on Whidbey Island 110 degrees true to the shipwreck on the opposite mainland shore.
