The RFA has a full time lobbyist in Olympia, Corey Freeman, and the crab issue is one of the biggest issues that he and the RFA are working on right now...it is very front burner. Send me an e-mail if you want any more information about it.
Keeping Clyde McBrayer on the Commission this week was HUGE for recreationals in this state, especially the recreational crabber. I suspect we'll see some timelines and mechanisms for proper counting put in place at the May 14 crab meeting in Olympia, and then a more fair allocation following the schedule and information gathering.
