CDFW has been working with a diverse coalition of commercial fishing representatives, environmental organizations, scientists and agency partners to reduce the risk of whale and sea turtle entanglements in commercial fishing gear used by the Dungeness crab fleet
CDFW completed the most recent marine life entanglement risk assessment under the Risk Assessment Mitigation Program. Recent survey data indicate Humpback whales have begun to return from their winter breeding grounds to northern California fishing grounds.
