SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The recreational Dungeness crab fishery opened Saturday and the commercial season is coming soon, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“Crab populations appear to be strong coming off another record-setting year in the commercial fishery,” said Pete Kalvass, a senior environmental scientist with the state department of fish and wildlife.

Sports crabbers can keep up to 10 Dungeness crabs per day of either sex I they reach the minimum size limit, or six if fishing from a party boat south of Mendocino County, officials said. No crabs can be taken from San Francisco Bay or San Pablo bay, which are crab nursery areas.

The commercial crabbing season was scheduled to start Nov. 15.
