Accordingly, this is the second annual report on the status of the Florida stone crab (Menippe mercenaria) fishery which is being managed under the Fishery Management Plan for Stone Crabs by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Manage- ment Council. The report updates the fishery statistics and reevaluates the previous estimate of MSY. The current best estimate of MSY is 1.88 million pounds of claws.
