Susan Shirley. 1994. "The Kodiak Tanner Crab Fishery." CFEC Report 94-6C


This study was undertaken in response to a petition to limit the Kodiak Dungeness crab fishery. Some Tanner crab fishermen think that the NPFMC's comprehensive rationalization plans or other limited entry actions may have spillover effects into their fishery. This report examines the Kodiak Tanner crab fishery with particular emphasis on the 1975-1993 time period. An analysis of the feasibility of limited entry under the existing regulatory environment is provided.
