SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dungeness crab boats in the fishing ports of San Francisco, Half Moon Bay and Bodega Bay are idle for a sixth day because of a price dispute.
Crab Boat Owners Association president Larry Collins says skippers are meeting Monday morning to discuss the strike that began last Wednesday.
The San Francisco Chronicle says the strike was called because crabbers learned fish brokers planned to cut prices of fresh crab from a previously agreed $3-a-pound to $2.75 or less because of slowing demand.
A price dispute last year delayed crab fishing by weeks.
