The Plan Team will review bycatch amounts of C. opilio taken inside and outside the C. opilio Bycatch Limitation Zone (COBLZ) and prepare recommendations for the Council regarding overall bycatch limits, as well as accounting for crabs taken outside the COBLZ, and whether or not they should accrue toward the bycatch limit that triggers closure of the COBLZ.
