Rules Amended: 635-005-0055

Subject: This amended rule allows the retrieval of derelict commercial crab pot gear that was lost or unable to be retrieved, due to the recent natural disaster (tsunami) on the Oregon coast, by fishermen other than the owners as required by permanent rule, for up to one month from the effective date of the rule.

Rules Coordinator: Therese Kucera—(503) 947-6033

Fishing Gear

It is unlawful for commercial purposes to:

(1) Take crab by any means other than crab rings or crab pots (ORS 509.415); a crab ring is any fishing device that allows crab unrestricted entry or exit while fishing.

(2) Possess on a vessel, use, control, or operate any crab pot which is greater than thirteen cubic feet in volume, calculated using external dimensions.

(3) Possess on a vessel, use, control, or operate any crab pot which does not include a minimum of two circular escape ports of at least 4-1/4 inches inside diameter located on the top or side of the pot. If escape ports are placed on the side of the pot, they shall be located in the upper half of the pot.

(4) Possess on a vessel, use, control, or operate any crab pot which does not have a release mechanism. Acceptable release mechanisms are:

(a) A single loop of untreated cotton not heavier than 120 thread size between pot lid tiedown hooks and the tiedown straps; or

(b) Any modification of the wire mesh on the top or upper half of the side of the pot, secured with a single strand of untreated cotton not heavier than 120 thread size, which, when removed, will create a minimum opening of at least 5 inches in diameter and will meet the following:

(A) The minimum opening may have not more than a single wire mesh (described as a “V”) that protrudes into the opening provided that mesh extends into the opening a distance of not more than 2.5 inches, as measured from the perimeter of the opening along either edge of the protruding wire mesh, to serve as an anchor for the securing cotton. The panel containing the opening and the wire mesh acting as an anchor for the securing cotton must be constructed of a single wire no greater than 0.050 inches in diameter.

(B) Cotton must not be wrapped multiple times around wire mesh and may use no more than one knot securing the wire mesh at each end.

(5) Place, operate, or leave crab rings or pots in the Pacific Ocean and Columbia River or in any bay or estuary during the closed season, except that in only the Pacific Ocean and Columbia River, rings or pots may be placed no more than 64 hours immediately prior to the date the Dungeness crab season opens. In addition, unbaited crab rings or pots with open release mechanisms may be left in the Pacific Ocean (not including the Columbia River) for a period not to exceed 14 days following the closure of the Dungeness crab season.

(6) Have Dungeness crab gear deployed in the Pacific Ocean or Columbia River more than 14 days without making a landing of Dungeness crab.

(7) Use commercial crab pots in the Columbia River or Pacific Ocean unless the pots are individually marked with a surface buoy bearing, in a visible, legible and permanent manner, the brand of the owner and the Department buoy tag, provided that:

(a) The brand is a number registered with and approved by the Department;

(b) Only one unique buoy brand shall be registered to any one permitted vessel;

(c) All crab pots fished by a permitted vessel must use only the Oregon buoy brand number registered to that vessel in the area off of Oregon;

(d) The Department shall issue crab buoy tags to the owner of each commercial crab permit in the amount determined by OAR 635-006-1015(1)(g)(E);

(e) All buoy tags eligible to a permit holder must be purchased from the Department at cost and attached to the gear prior to setting gear; and

(f) Buoys attached to a crab pot must have the buoy tag securely attached to the first buoy on the crab pot line (the buoy closest to the crab pot) at the end away from the crab pot line;

(g) Additional buoy tags to replace lost tags will be issued by the Department as follows:

(A) As of the first business day after 30 days following the season opening in the area fished, up to ten percent of the tags initially issued for that season; or

(B) For a catastrophic loss, defined as direct loss of non-deployed gear in the event of a vessel being destroyed due to fire, capsizing, or sinking. Documentation of a catastrophic loss may include any information the Department considers appropriate, such as fire department or US Coast Guard reports; or

(C) If the Director finds that the loss of the crab pot buoy tags was:

(i) Due to an extraordinary event; and

(ii) The loss was minimized with the exercise of reasonable diligence; and

(iii) Reasonable efforts were taken to recover lost buoy tags and associated fishing gear.

(D) Upon receipt of the declaration of loss required by subsection (7)(g)(E) of this rule, and a request for replacement tags under subsection (7)(g)(C) of this rule, the Director or the Director’s designee may provide an opportunity for the permit holder requesting the replacement tags to describe why the buoy tag loss meets the criteria for replacement under subsection (7)(g)(C). The Director or the Director’s designee shall provide the Director’s order to the permit holder and to the Department’s License Services. The permit holder may appeal the Director’s findings to the Fishery Permit Review Board under OAR 635-006-1065(1)(g).

(E) Permit holders (or their alternative designated on the buoy tag order form) must obtain, complete, and sign a declaration of loss under penalty of perjury in the presence of an authorized Department employee. The declaration shall state the number of buoy tags lost, the location and date where lost gear or tags were last observed, and the presumed cause of the loss.

(8) Remove, damage, or otherwise tamper with crab buoy or pot tags except when lawfully applying or removing tags on the vessel’s buoys and pots.

(9) Possess on a vessel, use, control, or operate any crab pot which does not have a pot tag identifying the pot as that vessel’s, a surface buoy bearing the Department buoy brand registered to that vessel and a Department buoy tag issued by the Department to that vessel, except:

(a) To set gear as allowed under OAR 635-006-1015; or

(b) To retrieve from the ocean, including the Columbia River, and transport to shore commercial crab pot(s) of another vessel which were lost, forgotten, damaged, abandoned or otherwise derelict; provided that:

(A) No more than twenty-five (25) such pots may be retrieved per trip during December 1 until the second Monday in June of the following year and no more than fifty (50) such pots may be retrieved per trip during the second Monday in June through August 28; and

(B) Upon retrieval from the ocean or Columbia River, the pot(s) must be un-baited; and

(C) Crab from the retrieved pot(s) shall not be retained; and

(D) Immediately upon retrieval of pot(s), the retrieving vessel operator must document in the retrieving vessel’s logbook the date and time of pot retrieval, number of retrieved crab pots, location of retrieval, and retrieved pot owner identification information; and

(E) Any retrieved crab pot(s) must be transported to shore during the same fishing trip that retrieval took place; or that:

(F) During August 29 through October 31, an unlimited number of such pots may be retrieved per trip and transported to shore during the same fishing trip; or

(c) Under a waiver granted by the Department to allow one time retrieval of permitted crab gear to shore by another crab permitted vessel provided that:

(A) Vessel is incapacitated due to major mechanical failure, natural disaster or destroyed due to fire, capsizing, or sinking;

(B) Circumstances beyond the control of the permit holder created undue hardship as defined by OAR 635-006-1095(7)(d);

(C) A Request must be in writing and a waiver approved and issued prior to retrieval.

(D) A copy of the waiver must be on board the vessel making the retrieval. (Contact Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife License Services, Salem for guidelines.)

(d) Under a waiver granted by the Department to allow one time change of buoy tags associated with a Dungeness crab permit transfer under OAR 635-006-1095(7) provided that:

(A) A request must be in writing and a waiver approved and issued prior to change of buoy tags.

(B) A copy of the waiver must be on board the vessel making the change of buoy tags. (Contact Department of Fish and Wildlife License Services, Salem for guidelines.)

(e) A vessel may transit through the Columbia River and the Pacific Ocean adjacent to Oregon while possessing crab pots not bearing Oregon buoy tags or Oregon buoy branded surface buoys, provided that the vessel is authorized to participate in the Dungeness crab fishery of an adjacent state.

(10) Attach one crab pot to another crab pot or ring net by a common groundline or any other means that connects crab pots together,

(11) Take crabs for commercial purposes by crab pots from any bay or estuary except the Columbia River.

(12) Operate more than 15 crab rings from any one fishing vessel in bays or estuaries, except the Columbia River.

(13) Take or fish for Dungeness crab for commercial purposes in the Columbia River or Pacific Ocean adjacent to the state of Oregon unless a crab pot allocation has been issued to the permit required under OAR 635-006-1015(1)(g).

(14) Deploy or fish more crab pots than the number of pots assigned by the crab pot allocation certificate or to use any vessel other than the vessel designated on the crab pot allocation, except to set gear as allowed under OAR 635-006-1015.
