SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— The Bay Area’s Dungeness Crab shortage can be blamed on the severe weather during the week of Christmas, but fisherman will set pots on Friday so that the supply is hopefully replenished by New Year’s Eve.
At San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf Thursday the signs read “sold out”. Fisherman were kept in port for nearly a week according to Angel Cincotta with Alioto Lazio Fish Company.
“We always have to remember that Mother Nature is part of the challenge in this industry,” Cincotta said.
She said by Christmas Eve, they were sold out of crab.
