Stock boundaries for edible crab remain poorly understood. Based on larval distributions and development, hydrographic conditions and the distribution of the fisheries, there are five assessment units named “Crab Fishery Units (CFU)” in England and Wales: Central North Sea, Southern North Sea, Eastern English Channel, Western English Channel and Celtic Sea (Masefield et al. 2015).

Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
