Dungeness Crab Strike Ends, Crab Boats Back on the Water


You may or may not have noticed, but local crab fisherman have been on strike for eleven days following what’s become an annual tradition of squabbling over twenty-five cents per pound on the wholesale price of crab. Wholesalers caved, agreed to three dollars a pound, and as of this morning the crabbers are back out on the water and expected back in port with a supply of fresh Dungeness this evening. And restaurants should be seeing the stuff again as of Thursday. [Chron]
