Golden Crab Data

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2021

In November 1995, a voluntary logbook program for the golden crab fishery in the waters under the jurisdiction of the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (SAFMC) was initiated by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). This Golden Crab Trip Report Logbook program became mandatory when regulations for the golden crab fishery management plan went into effect on October 28, 1996. Regulations require that all fishers that have been issued a Federal vessel permit for the golden crab fishery in the South Atlantic region must complete and submit a logbook form for each fishing trip on which golden crabs are caught. All reporting must be done on log forms that are provided by the Southeast Fisheries Science Center (SEFSC) and must be returned to the SEFSC for data processing.
