Strawberry plant care

Should strawberry plants be cut back for the winter? I live in zone 8, western washington with very mild winters. What should I be doing for my strawberry plants right now in preparation for a good harvest in early summer?
 
Strawberries are perennials, which bear best after the first year, but the productivity will decline after 3 or so years. In cold climates they need protective mulch, less so in milder areas. Dont cut back the plants, I would recommend using kelp extract during the growing season though to boost production as well as quality and taste of the fruit. If birds are a problem you should consider protecting your bounty with netting.
