West Coast Dungeness crab season to open Dec. 1 for first time in years – AP

Very good news for both the crab and those of us that eat them.

For the first time in years, commercial Dungeness crab fisheries in Oregon, Washington state and Northern California will begin on the traditional Dec. 1 opener after recent preseason testing showed high meat yield in crabs across the region.

  1. The lead declares there is positive news for crabbers and crabs based on the west coast commercial crab season opening December 1. But there is also a link about the recreational crab season opening in Marine Area 10 of Puget Sound. The latter does not indicate positive status of crabs in area 10, since it is based on the relatively small summer catch limit not being met. Indeed my understanding is that crabs are not doing well in central and south Puget Sound. So this post needs clarification. Thanks. Also please update my email
