A New Study of Crab Pot Design Effectiveness

A new study just completed by the Northwest Straits Foundation found that some crab pots are better than others in allowing crabs to escape if the pots are lost. The ubiquitous Danielson square pot does a good job, but the pots with top opening escape panels that require crabs to push their way out don’t work well. Making those top opening escape hatches spring loaded by attached a bungee cord helps make them more effective. Read the study fact sheet or full report at www.derelictgear.org.
