Dutch Harbor Update | Deadliest Catch Ready For 2012 Opener

The snow crab season is about to start up north in the Bering Sea. The season is technically open, but the crews are taking a break for the holiday season.  Crabbers are beginning to migrate back to Dutch to start the opilio season, which has a great quota this year. The King crab season quota was smaller, but the price of King Crab is at its highest ever. The snow crab is expected to fetch a record price this season, as well.
I’ve included some tweets from the DC crew. The photos are courtesy of Dutch harbor dirt. These photos were taken over the recent holiday. Make sure to check the Dutch Harbor cam for all the latest dock action in Dutch.
