Do I need a permit to take crabs?
Permits are not required to take crabs. Any one may take up to 50 crabs per day from any water body. You may take crabs from areas that are closed to shellfishing, and you may take them at night. This fishery is controlled by the Division of Marine Fisheries. Crabs must be 4 and 1/8 inches wide and must not have eggs to be taken.
