"September, 2001, Updated October, 2002" - note from cover. "This report reviews the Oregon's ocean commercial Dungeness crab fishery. It provides both a present and historical evaluation of the fishery, its vessel effort, and gear use, but emphasizes more recent analysis and information relevant to a discussion of pot limits. It describes a "fleet profile" for Oregon's active crab fleet, its production, gear (pot) distribution by vessel size categories, and how fleet composition and seasonal landing patterns have changed in recent years. It evaluates several possible approaches for consideration of pot limits and shows examples of those approaches in the form of a possible option with estimated gear impacts (increase or decrease in gear) of each option should it be implemented. And finally, it includes a final report on the Winter 2001 ODFW mail-out survey on pot limits that sought opinion and comment from all Oregon crab limited entry permit holders on the issue of pot limits."
