Marine Management News Fish Identification Quiz

Welcome to the Marine Management News Fish Identification Quiz for February 2015! We’re stretching the definition of “fish” to the legal limit with this quiz, by selecting a crustacean for identification!  (The legal definition of “fish” in California Fish and Game Code (§45) includes not only wild fish but also crustaceans, mollusks, invertebrates, and amphibians, and any “part, spawn, or ova thereof.”)

We felt it was only fair to include these multi-legged critters in at least one identification quiz, given their popularity. So, here’s your chance to show off your shellfish identification knowledge and win an official Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) fish tagging cap! To qualify for the drawing, simply send the correct information to AskMarine@wildlife.ca.gov by March 31, 2015 identifying:

  • The species of crab pictured below (scientific name) and an accepted common name, and
  • The daily bag limit, as found in the current Ocean Sport Fishing regulations booklet
