Crab season opens, but boats remain tied up in Dutch Harbor

The Bristol Bay red king crab season opened today, but like last year, the majority of the fleet is still tied up in Dutch Harbor, waiting for their proxies in Seattle to agree on a fair price. Greg White is a negotiator for the Inter-Cooperative Exchange, which represents about 70% of the Bering Sea crab fleet in negotiations with seafood companies.
