2018 Stock Assessment and Fishery Evaluation

January 30, 2019

This Fisheries Management Plan includes all species and fisheries for king and Tanner crab (red, blue, and brown king crab, Tanner crab, and snow crab). In-season management of these fisheries is provided by ADF&G in Kodiak.

The annual stock assessment and fishery evaluation (SAFE) report is a requirement of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council's Fishery Management Plan for Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands King and Tanner Crabs (FMP), and a federal requirement [50 CFR Section 602.12(e)]. The SAFE report summarizes the current biological and economic status of fisheries, total allowable catch (TAC) or Guideline Harvest Level (GHL), and analytical information used for management decisions. Additional information on Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands (BSAI) king and Tanner crab is available on the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS).
