OAKLAND, Calif., November 14, 2016 — As the commercial Dungeness crab season opens in California Nov. 15, the Center for Biological Diversity is urging fishermen to comply with recommended gear modifications to help reduce the risk of whale entanglements. The season’s opening days put whales at high risk because more available crab means fishermen are on the water as many days as possible.
