In mid-December, 1948, during the time the crab season was closed in State waters, a boat caught crabs outside the entrance to the Columbia River, which was outside the three-mile jurisdictional limit. Because "one man was already fishing," the crab fleet members began to complain and threaten to fish before the December 28 opening of the season. This report describes a meeting between Oregon Fish Commission biologists and the upset crabbers.
