Lucrative SE red king crab fishery remains closed
KFSK by Joe Viechnicki - September 21, 2020
Southeast Alaska won’t have a commercial fishery for red king crab again this fall.
That fishery has only opened six years out of the last two decades, because of low population estimates. It last opened in 2017. The catch that year was over 120,000 pounds worth around 1.3 million dollars at the docks.
