  • Number of pots for 2017?

    I heard that we will be allowed 5 shrimp pots for the 2017 season. Can anyone confirm this?

    ADFG site says 4 pots still.

      The other day I was in the Anchorage office of ADF&G and they finally cut off receiving any additional shrimping permits from last year. So they are still crunching numbers and I was told it would be probably 3-4 weeks before everything was decided for the coming season. Permits will be available on line and we are getting close to were getting a permit and reporting will only be online. It would really help if people filed their reports in a timely manner. I know if I don't file my subsistence permits by the time they are due I can't get another one the following season.

        Someone told me the number of pots was switched back to 5. According to the F&G page it says 5 now!!!!

        Update: Well I found another place that says 4 still. SO I guess 4 1/2 pots is good.

          After speaking with the biologist it looks like sport shrimpers over fished sport GHL allocation by 30% last year (numbers may be out by end of week). I would guess that it will remain at 4 pots, but should probably be reduced to 3. This may be because of the 16% increase in shrimp permits issued last year.

          The other solution is for in-season online reporting. Then it would be possible to fish with more gear, but with a potentially shorter season.

            It seems that the number of harvestable shrimp is up. I find it hard to believe that there was a 16% increase in the number of shrimpers. That seems to be quite the increase of people buying boats or finding other ways to go out. I guess we will have to wait and see.

              Dewey's alone sells a lot of boats in Anchorage. There were a crapload of pots floating around last year it seemed to me. Everywhere I went - I went a lot.

                i tend to agree with the increase in rec boaters too. We have been seeing more and more buoys floating around. Many in poor shrimping waters too. LOL Along with the big increase in human related emergency calls for the CG and other boaters. I'm all for keeping the pot limit to 4 this year, but really like seeing the increase in shrimp numbers in this report.

                  Let's leave it at 4 pots, but give **** near all of PWS to the commercial shrimpers and raise their quota to almost 120,000 pounds. That's sounds like a good idea to me.

                            I made it back up to Whittier last summer for the first time since 2005 when I brought the boat around from Seward and couldn't believe the number of buoys in Passage Canal. Compared to what I was used to before the tunnel was paved I'd say at least 10-20x the number of buoys fishing including lots in the middle of the canal. I can't imagine how many pots get run over by the ferry!

                              Its sooooo much more important to have the com guys around for the HUGE shrimp fishery we have in the sound. 67K lbs is alot of money for these guys and is such a huge part of our fishery. Think we should limit the rec guys to 1 pot and can only soak for 2 hrs a trip then raise the com quota. How this sound to everyone??
