  • The daily limit throughout Puget Sound is five Dungeness crabs, hard-shell males only, with a minimum carapace width of 6 1/4 inches. 
  • Fishers may keep six red rock crabs of either sex per day in hard-shell condition and measuring at least 5 inches carapace width. 
  • Puget Sound crabbers must record their harvest on summer catch record cards right after retaining the crab and before re-deploying the trap. More info:
