NEWPORT, Ore. – The opening of the ocean commercial Dungeness crab season in Oregon will be delayed through at least Dec. 15, fishery managers announced today.

The commercial Dungeness crab season along the Oregon coast normally opens Dec. 1, but can be delayed to ensure a high-quality product to consumers. The testing measures the percentage of meat in the crab, by weight. Delaying the season allows the crab to fill with meat.

Coast-wide testing showed some areas did not meet minimum pre-season test criteria. Fishery managers from Oregon, Washington and California met today and decided to delay the season opening from Klipsan Beach, Wash., south to the Oregon/California border through at least Dec. 15, pending further results. Testing is still underway in Northern California to determine the season status from Point Arena to the Oregon/California border.

Recreational harvest of crab in the ocean off Oregon will open as scheduled on Dec. 1. The recreational harvest of Dungeness crab in Oregon’s bays and estuaries is open year round.
