UD and Delaware Sea Grant have set dates for the 2022 Volunteer-based Derelict Crab Pot Round-Ups in Indian River
Delaware Sea Grant and University of Delaware have set target dates for the 2022 Volunteer-based Derelict Crab Pot Round-Ups in Indian River! Round-Ups will be hosted on the first three good weather days between January 13 -21, 2022. Activities will take place in Indian River, out of Rosedale Public Boat Launch & Warwick Park, Millsboro, DE. A second staging site is TBD.
The Round-Ups rely heavily on the support of volunteers who can bring and crew their own boats to help remove derelict crab pots from Delaware’s Inland Bays. Gear such as grappling hooks, gloves, and clipboards will be provided. This year, volunteers will be recruited to help out on shore as well.
Potential volunteers can learn more by attending a virtual information sessions on November 16 or December 2, 2021, from 5-6 pm. To attend either session, visit this crab pot round update webpage and find the registration form link.
