This is an exhibit prepared by the Oregon Dept. of Fish and Wildlife for the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission. Washington State had delayed the opening of their 1989-90 commercial crab fishery, and this delay disrupted fisheries in other states up and down the West Coast. The main focus of this report is to develop a plan in case this situation arose again in the future. Attachments to the main document include, "History and Status of the Oregon Dungeness Crab Fishery" by Darrell Demory (March, 1990); "Staff Statement on Petition to Permit a Two-Week Period for Removal of Crab Gear After the Close of the Season"; and "Summary of March 28, 1990 Oregon Crab Industry Workshop."
