Membership is only available to Southern California rock crab fishermen permit holders. Currently there is no fee to become a member. The initial goal is to simply establish an association that will discuss, address and represent the fishery and the concerns that the Southern California rock crab fishermen face.
The 2018 CRAB FISHERMEN MEMBERSHIP form is available to fill out online, print and mail. It will provide the names and contact information that will begin the process of establishing the association. Posted are the minutes from an earlier discussion as to some of the issues crab fishermen are facing both today and in the near future. While this meeting was held at the Santa Barbara Harbor, the goal of this website is to provide an online resource for members located up and down the California coast.
