Reducing Loss of Crab Pots

No fisher wants to lose pots, but pots are lost, and with inexperienced crabbers, a little knowledge can go a long way to prevent crab pot loss. One of our member organizations, the NW Straits Foundation, working with NOAA ‘s Marine Debris Program produced a number of short videos (1 minute each)┬áto instruct crabbers on using best fishing practices to reduce crab pots loss. ┬áHere are links to these videos on You Tube:

Below are the videos on Youtube:
