The Blue Crab Research Project, funded by the North Carolina General Assembly and administered by the North Carolina Sea Grant Program, is testing the effectiveness of different sizes of cull rings for crab pots along seven of the state's estuaries. Cull rings, or escape rings, allow undersized crabs to escape from the crab pot. Fewer sub-legal crabs in the pots means crabbers spend less time sorting their catches. Results of the study will be available in the summer of 2007.
