Gee, this sounds like the stimulus “debate.”

Bummer is all I can say but this happens every freakin’ year.

Get the damn politics out of crabbing. These fishermen have a short season and large overhead. Christmas is the biggest seller for them .

Chronicle and other local papers report that an agreement on price has been met and crab season is officially open. Still waiting for EaterSF to update their info.

Fresh Dungeness crab finally on its way to Bay Area after fleets, wholesalers reach agreement - SFChronicle.com

I wonder, since the agreed-upon price is so low this year due to reduced demand, how will that affect the price? Low demand usually means lower prices, but if buying directly from the fishermen they may want to raise prices in order to make up what they lose selling to Pacific Seafood.

Finally. I hope all parties, including me :grin:, will be happy.

Support the fisherman . Once again the’re struggling . Very hard work with high overhead. I’m sure they have been talking to family. I’m selling the boat . I’m barely breaking even . They missed Thanksgiving, Christmas, and new year’s sales .

Hope you don’t mind my asking, but are you a professional fisherman?

No. I lived in Santa Cruz for 60 years . Coming back from a crab haul those guys are beat to shit . Met them at the harbor for the unload .

Request to the group: Please post here if someone confirms the HMB crabbers will be selling off the boat this week? I’d like to go head down there like in past years…
TIA!
