    Shrimp may be taken only with pots and ring nets;

    Crab may be taken only with pots, ring nets, diving gear, dip nets, hooked or hookless handlines, or by hand; a line attached to a pole or rod may be used in the Bering Sea only when fishing a line through the ice;

    Clams may be taken only by hand or with rakes, shovels, and manually operated clam guns;

    Abalone may be taken only with abalone irons, diving gear, or by hand.

    Other shellfish may be taken with trawls, hand jigging, and hand-operated dredges, except that in the waters of Southeastern Alaska sea cucumbers may not be taken with the use of diving gear.

    Each pot used to take Dungeness, Tanner or king crab must have at least two circular escape rings on opposing vertical or sloping sides of the pot. The size of the escape rings must be at least 4⅜ inches inside diameter for Dungeness crab pots, 4 inches inside diameter for Tanner crab pots, and 6 inches inside diameter for king crab pots.

Any pot used to take shrimp must not have (a) more than 4 tunnel eye openings that individually exceed 15 inches in perimeter, (b) a bottom perimeter greater than 153 inches, or (c) a volume that exceeds 25 cubic feet.
