Trouble in Crab Heaven
...Commercial boats were scheduled to set their crab pots this coming Wednesday for Thursday's opener that traditionally supplies Dungeness for the holiday demand. Because of the fuel spill, that opener might be in question.
...Collins is just as worried about the spill's long-term effect on the bay, which is a nursery for young Dungeness crab.
"Right now, the bay is loaded with baby Dungeness. As that fuel moves down the water column, it could devastate crab numbers for years to come." - SFGate
