Commercial Crab Fishing - Crab Domoic Acid 2017 Rules Advisory Committee Information

Purpose and goals of the ODA and ODFW Rules Advisory Committee

Dungeness crab harvest is an economic and cultural centerpiece in Oregon, a keystone for Oregon’s popular seafood brand. Reliable and sustainable harvest is essential to maximizing the value of harvested crab to Oregon, and safe seafood management practices are essential for protecting the health of Oregonians. This Rules Advisory Committee will help shape Oregon Administrative Rules (OARs) for ODA and ODFW to describe the management use of evisceration orders and harvest area closures, to address harmful algal bloom biotoxin detection in crab viscera, to both maximize the protection of human health and maximize the sustainable harvest during these events.

Goals: Advise the agencies over 2-3 meetings on rules and process describing under what conditions evisceration may be used for crab harvest and how to implement closures, when necessary. Conditions must maximize traceability of the live market to minimize risk of public exposure to biotoxins. This includes improving traceability for the purposes of communication with non-HACCP required crab buyers and for the purposes of inventory evaluation for HACCP processors.
