Delayed but Delicious: Oregon Dungeness Crab is Here!
In Oregon, the commercial season typically opens December 1. Oregon’s Dungeness Crab commercial season has been delayed each year for the last several years with pricing negotiations between processors and the fleet the reason for this season’s delay. On Friday, January 11th, wholesale buyers and negotiators for commercial crabbers in Oregon agreed on an opening price for the coveted crustaceans after more than three weeks of gridlock.
“Dungeness crab are the tastiest on the market,” said Ryan Rogers, the longtime commercial fisherman and owner of Fisherman’s Market. “We always love supplying our community with the best local, sustainable seafood available. It’s because of our relationships with local fishers that we are able to continue to do so, and we are thankful to each of them.”
