Fresh Dungeness crab will be available by Thanksgiving!
There are no delays to the season this year as there was last year as fishermen and buyers agreed to a price early this season, said fisherman Jim Anderson, captain of the Allaine.
Fresh Dungeness will be sold on the dock for $3 a pound, Anderson said.
“There’s not the crab we had last year,” Anderson said.
However, there should be fresh Dungeness available on Thanksgiving Day, he said.
Anderson plans to set pots at about 6 a.m. today and pull the pots just after midnight tonight to sell on the docks Thursday.
