NFI Crab Council Summer Working Group Eyes Sustainability Work Expansion

The National Fisheries Institute’s Crab Council met in Baltimore, Maryland June 21 and 22 as part of its working group meeting series. This is the third of the policy and project focused meetings since 2019. Previous consultations have resulted in everything from development of detailed units of assessment, to track Fisheries Improvement Projects (FIP) to the adoption of the Spawning Potential Ratio (SPR) method to quantify and monitor progress.
