All California Fisheries Closing In April To Protect Whales


OF VENGEANCE AND DEVELOPMENT BUT OPPONENTS ARGUE THE MOVE IS A LAND GRAB. THE STATE’S COMMERCIAL CRAB SEASON WILL BE CUT SHORT. PART OF AN EFFORT TO SAVE OTHER SEA CREATURES. THE DUNGENESS CRAB SEASON USUALLY CLOSES AT THE END OF JUNE WITH THE RECENT COURT SETTLEMENT SEASON WILL NOW END THREE MONTHS EARLY. WHALES CAN GET TANGLED IN CRAB TRAP LINES AND OTHER DEBRIS. IN 17 THERE WERE MORE THAN 70 REPORTED ON THE WEST COAST. THE CENTER FOR BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY SUED THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA FOR FAILING TO PROTECT THE WHALES. THESE WHALES ARE PROTECTED UNDER THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT . Reporter: THE STATE AND THE PACIFIC COAST FEDERATION OF FISHERMEN AGREED TO THE SETTLEMENT CALLING FOR THE CRAB SEASON TO END APRIL 15th. TWO WEEKS TO GET THEM OUT. THAT’S RIGHT FISHERMEN ARE GOING TO BE SCRAMBLING. IS GOING TO BE TOUGH, THREE MONTHS OF LOST A FISHING OPPORTUNITY. Reporter: NO ONE WANTS TO HURT THE WHALES, THERE ARE SOME ROPE LIST TRAPS BEING TESTED. IF THEY ARE DROPPED IN THE BOTTOM EQUIPPED WITH CO2 CARTRIDGES. WHEN TRIGGERED THEY FILL FLOATS THAT BRING THE TROP TO THE SURFACE. THIS METHOD IS STILL IN THE TESTING PHASE. MEANWHILE THE SEASON IS CLOSING. POSSIBLE SOME OF THESE GUYS WILL GO OUT OF BUSINESS, LOSE THEIR BOATS? YES IT’S POSSIBLE. ENTIRELY POSSIBLE.
