Total Allowable Catch Announced for Red King Crab, Snow Crab and Bairdi

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) announced total allowable catch for the 2019/2020 season for Bristol Bay Red King crab, Bering Sea Snow crab and Bering Sea Bairdi.

Bristol Bay Red King crab: Opening at noon on October 15th, the 2019/20 Bristol Bay Red King crab total allowable catch (TAC) is 3.797 million pounds, which represents an almost 12% decrease compared to last year’s TAC.

Bering Sea Snow crab: Opening at noon on October 15th, the 2019/20 Bering Sea District Snow crab fishery total allowable catch is 34.019 million pounds. This represents a 23% increase from the 2018/19 season.

Bering Sea Bairdi: Because estimated mature male biomass in the eastern and western Bering Sea areas are below thresholds, Bering Sea Tanner crab (C. Bairdi) fisheries will be closed for the 2019/20 season.
