Crab pots mysteriously vanish in Puget Sound – KING News

Crab post vanishing, but not necessarily the worse case scenario. Also, maybe reporting is up?

Since last season, more than 1,000 crab and shrimp pots have been reported stolen or lost to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. “When it’s gone, they always think the worst,” said Ralph Downes, a fish and wildlife police officer for two decades. “Worst case scenario? I’m thinking 10 percent is the result of theft.” As for the other 90 percent, Downes and other wildlife officers think the culprit is the strong current of the sound. Dan Cassuto reports. (KING)
