Dungeness Season is here!

by Alexander Quebec

Dungeness crab season is back in the Bay Area.

Today marks the first day that the sweet and briney meat will be available in markets all across the Bay Area.

After a few years of bad storms and a toxic algea, fisherman across the Bay Area are now hauling loads the crabs to consumers. Each haul consists of 8,000 to 10,000 lbs of crabs, which is the legal limit fishermen are allowed to harvest.

The National Weather service predicts a storm system coming through, which may have a negative effect on smaller and mid sized boats. Other dangers such as pods tipping over the boats and other natural phenomenom can affect the flow of crab into the stores this holiday season.
