Another crab season on the Bering Sea is just around the corner. The actual forecast is about 19,000 metric tons of king crab, which is better than last year’s quota at 15,00 metric tons. This is still a small harvest for King Crab, but the price should hold. The quota for Oplio crab, also known as, Snow crab, has gone down this year by almost 30 percent. However, demand for snow crab has grown over the last few years as well, which means that the price is good. These are only preliminary estimates and the official total will be out by the end of october.
Here’s a little example of the Deadliest TwitterFeed. It appears that Elliot is not returning to the Ramblin Rose and he is shopping for a boat. Will he be on season 10? The rest of the guys are prepping the boats for the upcoming season. Check out the tweets below to catch up. Filming will begin this fall and the next season will air in the spring. Let’s hope the ice isn’t as bad as last year.
