We are committed to bringing crabbing resources and information directly to the crabbing community.  Our personal promise is to promote crabbing education, environmental stewardship and spread the word of conservation.




The people at the Department of Fish and Wildlife work tirelessly to ensure the health and safety of Puget Sound’s crab population.  If it weren’t for them we surely would have lost this resource to over-harvesting long ago.  Special thanks go out to everyone at the WDFW!
