Much of this report is concerned with the perennial question of when crabs are in the soft-shell state, as opposed to when the commercial fishing season should be open. Other topics covered include molted crab shells, methods of measuring crab shells to determine if they meet size limits, early growth studies of Dungeness crabs, and egg sampling of female crabs. The report also includes a report on cockle crab growth studies.
