Arctic Sounder by Laine Welch - October 29, 2020
The plan is to hold in-person meetings while monitoring COVID-19 threats

#3MMI - Global Dungeness Crab Fall Market Update
TradexFoods - November 2, 2020
Current full season harvest total for Alaska is just over 6 million lbs with about one month of fishing left. As Washington state fishery managers prepare to open the 2020/21 season, recent testing showed poor meat recovery. Nationwide, we estimate global 2020 Dungeness Crab harvest totals to ring-in close to 2019's & 2018’s nationwide totals. Fast forward to October and current market conditions for Dungeness are that export sales from China have still not recovered, domestic domestic demand is slow, and to clear any confusion there is not an excess of Dungeness in freezers.
