    "An annual trawl survey is conducted in the eastern Bering Sea (EBS) to determine the distribution and abundance of crab and groundfish resources. This report summarizes survey results for commercially important crabs. It is intended to aid fishermen and processors in locating productive grounds and judging overall availability of various species. Survey-derived data are also used as part of the basis for management decisions. Results are presented for red king crab (Paralithodes camtschaticus), blue king crab (P. platypus), hair crab (Erimacrus isenbeckii), Tanner crab (Chionoecetes bairdi) and snow crab (C. opilio)"--Page 3.
