Abandoned Crab Trap Removal Program

The annual Texas abandoned crab trap clean up begins this weekend! Between Feb. 15-24, Texas coastal waters will be closed to crabbing with wire mesh crab traps to facilitate the annual volunteer crab trap cleanup. Any traps left in bays — including traps tied to docks — will be assumed abandoned and considered “litter” under state law. This allows volunteers to legally remove any crab traps they find.
