FishSource – Cuata swimcrab – Eastern Gulf of California

It seems that the biomass of crabs have been decreasing since the late half decade of SAGARPAbut current information is not available.

A target catch per unit effort rate of 0. If deemed necessary, closed seasons and areas may also be put in place to protect these species during the reproduction period SAGARPA, a. Sinaloa, Sonora, and Baja California Sur are the most important areas to artisanal fishery.

Faunal bycatch in the swimming crab fishery in the Gulf of California Sonora and Sinaloa. Universal software for fishery statistical time series. A minimum carapace width is in force for each crab species, as is a ban on landing juveniles and landing or removing the eggs vallinectes berried females. Higher recruitment levels occurs from May to July. Catches of crabs in Gulf of California increased in The assessment cited a target fishing mortality rate of 2. Diario Oficial, 15 July In terms of elasmobranchs, only two species of rays callincetes been recorded as bycatch: Registered users can download the original data file for calculating the scores after logging in.


Bycatch rates in this fishery are low compared with other fisheries of the kind. Despite the bycatch of juvenile specimens of several species, traps are considered to be selective gear and the impacts on the ecosystem to be low Ocampo et al. Fisheries Within FishSource, the term “fishery” is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource.

Within the reserve, in callinwctes delta of the Colorado River, no fishing is callinectez, to conserve breeding and nursery areas for species including crabs Secretary of the Environment, Startinga fishing ban will be put in place in these months Balmori and Torre, Instituto Nacional de la Pesca. The joint crab assessment has determined the maximum sustainable yield MSY to be between 3, and 4, tonnes for Sinaloa, depending on size and productivity.

Cuata swimcrab

Callinecyes with regulators to implement the use of biodegradable panels in all crab pots to prevent ghost fishing by lost gear. A new assessment is currently underway. These crabs inhabit the coastal areas Spring-Summer and acllinectes on lagoon and estuary systems and their abundance decreases during autumn. The crab fishery also catches warrior swimcrab, Callinectes bellicosusand giant swimcrab, C.

Workplan made public 30 June — Workplan made public 1 December — Detailed workplan made public. Confirmation of project participants. No data available for fishing mortality.

Oh no, there’s been an error

Based upon producers initiative, a “crabmeter” was produced and distributed among the producers supplying the FIP participants in order to help them to verify minimum legal sizes of the landings. Several management measures are in place. Work with regulators to establish a comprehensive, transparent and long-term monitoring program to collect information to support the stock assessments, and quantify the bycatch and environmental impacts of the fishery.


Collect and analyse catch data to establish the scale and pattern of catches of the three species of Callinectes within the fishery. Current biomass estimates are not available but catches increased in The fishery is not quota managed; no official information on compliance with licenses and regulations is made available.

A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.

Since the fishery is at maximum sustainable yield MSY level, advice in was to not increase fishing effort, in terms of number of gear in operation: To see data for catch and tac, please view this site on a desktop. Other scientific recommendations include increased research in terms of: According to a recent study, the overall numbers of Pacific seahorses recorded in the fishing traps are however low and specimens are generally released alive. Bycatch is considered low.

On average, grams of bycacth are obtained per each kilogram of crab harvested Balmori and Torre, FIP activities undertaken 1 December — Fishery management plan developed.
