Crab Pots

A derelict crab pot is offloaded at Cap Sante Marina in June 2018.

Throughout the Salish Sea, thousands of derelict crab pots still collect Dungeness crabs, leaving the creatures trapped and reducing the harvest.

The Northwest Straits Foundation is getting ready for upcoming fieldwork to address the issue.
