The Crab Sectoral Committee provides a forum for the exchange of information 
and views between all user groups and Fisheries & Oceans Canada on issues 
important to the management of the fishery.

Advise on the development of annual Management Plans for the fishery.

Crab Sectoral Committee members have requested that Fisheries and Oceans Canada 
consider changing the format of the Crab Sectoral Committee meetings to provide 
better opportunities for engagement in crab management. This will be a key item

from all user groups to form a subcommittee to develop recommendations on how 
to improve this process.
