Thread: Keeping King Crab in Juneau?

  1. #1

    Default Keeping King Crab in Juneau?

    I have heard from a few folks around here that King Crab seaon has been cancelled. That being said, the regs say the season is open and I can't find any emergency orders saying otherwise. I need to know if I am legal to pick some up while I am diving today.

    Thank you. Any idea if the Golden Kings are shallow enough to pick up while diving, ie. <120ft?

    Default Too deep

    According to ADF&G,

    Golden King Crabs live mostly between 100-400 fathoms, but can occur from 50-500 fathoms.

    The E.O. that actually closed the season dates back to Sept 2007.

    "It is anticipated that the regulation [opening the rest of S.E. to red/blue king crab] will be in effect later in July."

    Wish they would get their ship together . . . I'm drooling for some fresh king crab.

    Me too! We mounted a pot puller this spring in anticipation of an opening. We're shrimping instead.
