California Southern Rock Crab Fishermen’s Association is a member-driven organization that advocates for a sustainable crab resource and the fishermen and communities that depend on it.
Tradition: We take great pride in the long-standing traditions that have laid a solid foundation for our industry. We believe that it is important to honor and understand our history of multi-generational crabbing families, hard work and stewardship as the foundation for the future.
Leadership: We understand that the issues we engage in are often controversial and that crab fishermen rarely agree on a single position. We respect those who have the courage to pursue the goal of ensuring a sustainable resource and an economically viable fishery.
Collaboration: We understand the crab fishery is a large and complex industry whose needs cannot be met through any single organization. We believe it is important to reach out to others with similar goals in working for the betterment and success of the California crab industry.
