Event Details

Feb 21–Mar 1, 2020 Texas coastal waters will be closed to crabbing with wire-mesh crab traps to facilitate the annual volunteer crab-trap cleanup. Any traps left in bays—including traps tied to docks—will be assumed abandoned and considered “litter” under state law. Volunteers are needed to remove traps lost or abandoned since last year’s cleanup.
