Abstract

In December 1964 interviewing of sport crab fishermen was begun in Humboldt Bay. A similar study was initiated in Crescent City in 1965. Fifty-four anglers interviewed at Humboldt Bay in 1964 and 1965 caught 27 Dungeness crabs, Cancer magister. The total estimated catch during the sampling period was 400 Dungeness crabs. Skiff fishermen in Crescent City caught an estimated 6,318 Dungeness crabs during the 1965-66 season; 1,666 Dungeness crabs during the 1966-67 season and 5,054 Dungeness crabs during the 1967-68 season. There is a good potential for increased fishing in Crescent City Harbor, Trinidad Bay and Shelter Cove. (10p.)
