2009 Research/Review of Bristol Bay Red King Crab


BSFRF funded research for Dr. Gordon Kruse of UAF for an ICES published review of the recovery of Bristol Bay stock of red king crab under a rebuilding plan. The review examined the factors that contributed to the successful rebuilding of the BBRKC stock; from the stock’s depleted status in the mid-1990s, implementation of a Federal rebuilding plan in 1996, bycatch reduction measures, area closures and their effects on the stock and the fishery. The BBRKC resource has been considered rebuilt since 2003.
