So I downloaded the Washington Shellfish regs. In the regs, for the area around the San Juans (Area 7), it states:
For all Shellfish Species, see Marine Area
maps and the map on next page for closures
pertaining to the following areas: San Juan
Islands Marine Preserve (Area 7);
Yet, there is no definition of the Marine Preserve. I see this map. Is the shaded are the preserve?
Also, I couldn't believe the regs - buoys must be red and white; some biodegradable string needs to be used to tie the trap shut (in case the trap get lost the crab can get out I guess). And I'm not even sure if the Danielson traps are legal there.
Does anyone have a clue about this?
