NOAA Fisheries Approves Atlantic Deep-Sea Red Crab Quota for 2018

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 1, 2018

NOAA Fisheries is implementing Atlantic deep-sea red crab quotas for the 2018 fishing year. We are not altering the projected 2018 quotas that we announced on February 22, 2017, because there have been no overages in 2017, and there is no new biological information.

The quota for 2018 is 1,775 metric tons, which is the same quota that has been in effect since 2011.

For more details, read the rule as filed in the Federal Register.
