About Us



To develop and promote sustainable solutions that help reduce and remove derelict fishing gear in protection of our fisheries and coastal ecosystems for the benefit of ALL stakeholders    

WeCrabNJ supports:

  •  Ecosystem health through the removal and prevention of derelict fishing gear that reduces the available blue crab catch and negatively impacts other bay species. 

  • The interests and livelihoods of the commercial fishing community through cooperative recovery programs that  include prevention training to reduce gear loss and increase economic benefits.

  • The interests of the recreational community through training that addresses properly setting commercial-style crab pots and how boaters can avoid contributing to derelict gear .
