Shrimping to Re-Open Wednesday May 22 in Marine Areas 10 & 11

posted by Mike on 05/16/2013

Recreational spot shrimp fishery reopening in Marine Area 11 and most of Marine Area 10

Action: Recreational spot shrimp fishing will reopen for one day (Wednesday, May 22) in Marine Area 11 and a portion of Marine Area 10, which includes all Marine Area 10 waters outside of Elliott Bay.

Effective date: 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, 2013.

Species affected: All shrimp species including spot shrimp.

Location: Marine Area 11 and Marine Area 10, excluding Elliott Bay (Elliott Bay is defined as all waters east of a line from West Point to Alki Point).

Reason for action: Sufficient recreational spot shrimp quota remains for one more day of fishing. The Elliott Bay portion of Marine Area 10 has a separate spot shrimp quota, and the quota has been reached in that area.

Other information: On last week's shrimp openers, several Puget Sound fishing areas experienced a 30 percent increase in participation over the previous season, so at this point it is unlikely that other central Puget Sound areas will reopen.

If you need any shrimping gear stop by and we'll be glad to help you out.
