This is an Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife exhibit for a meeting of the Oregon State Fish and Wildlife Commission. "Problem: Oregon crab fishermen are concerned that 4-3/8" escape ports in crab pots allow too many legal male crabs to escape. Requests have been made to determine whether or not this is so and to consider going back to 4-1/4" escape ports."
