Photos from: Oregon Dungeness Crab Fishery Finishes with Another Stellar Year

Al Gann and Curtis Gann aboard F/V Rachel II show how they retrieve crab pots as part of the Clatsop Commercial Fisheries Tour in Astoria, Oregon. Oregon crabbers had another good season, hauling in 18.7 million pounds valued at $66.8 million as of the end of July. But the season didn't start until January 15 due to low meat yields and in some places domoic acid concerns - a trend that fishery managers say could continue for the foreseeable future.
