Another delayed season for Dungeness crab on the Oregon coast
Dungeness crab season is scheduled to start in December in our region. But the opening of the commercial crabbing season has been delayed several times in recent years by a variety of factors.
The delays have gone on especially long this year, with crabbing still closed from Bandon south to the California state line, due to domoic acid and undersized crabs. It's not just missed meals, it's missed paychecks for people in the crabbing business.
