Shirley, Susan. 1993. "Characterization of the 1990 Dungeness Crab Fleet in Southeast Alaska: Vessel Attributes, Fishery Participation, and Fishery Performance. December 1993." CFEC Report Number 93-9C. Alaska Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission.


This report was prepared as part of CFEC's study during the SE dungeness crab moratorium as called for under AS 16.43.225. The study takes a close look at the 1990 dungeness crab fleet, to try to breakdown and describe its different components, particularly the many different types of part-time operations. The fleet is differentiated by fishing patterns, both by season and across fisheries, vessel attributes, pots registered, and home port. An interesting result of the analysis is that vessels which specialize in Southeast dungeness crab tend to be smaller.
