Local Commercial Fishing Equipment Supplier Comments On Crab Season's Rough Start In 2020

January 28, 2020 - /PressAdvantage/ - Seattle Marine Bellingham notes that the start of crab season in the new year continues to bring new obstacles as the adverse weather conditions challenge fishing boats heading out to sea. Despite the delay established by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, only a few of the larger ships were able to make it out to the open seas so far, all of which sailed early in the morning before conditions took a turn for the worse. Many others have had to delay departure until the stormy weather passed and more favorable conditions were present, though even those who have sailed out are now facing a waiting game.

Despite all of these setbacks and challenges, the new crab season still began earlier than it did in 2018, though whether or not it will deliver similar results is yet to be seen.

The past few years have shown a trend in both delays and other truncation at the beginning of the crab season, though this has not had a significant effect on crab yield. The 2018 season had one of the highest yields to date despite having its start delayed significantly, with 18.7 million pounds of Dungeness crab. Such an outstanding haul was estimated to contribute more than $150 million to the state’s economy.

The consequences of delaying the season only seems to affect the fishing crews themselves, who will have to wait longer before they start to see new checks coming in. Other businesses that rely on the fishing industry to survive also take a significant hit whenever a new season is delayed, hurting the state's economy as a whole. This goes on until weather conditions improve, Notably, this turn of events has also affected recreational crabbers who find their haul in local bays.

A report published on the KOIN O6 online news site further emphasizes this. The report includes an interview with Steve Graves, a recreational angler, who says, "I think the bar crossing’s pretty extreme. I can't even begin to imagine the conditions they must be facing out there, as just being in the bay is pretty rough. I would certainly not want to be on one of those boats.”

As providers for commercial fishing supplies & marine equipment, Seattle Marine encourages fishermen across the state to double-check their equipment and make sure that everything is in order for when the weather smoothes out, as missing equipment can be as great a setback than bad weather. They can also assert the fishing community that they have crabbing gear and accessories of the highest quality at all of their locations. This includes accessories such as knife sheaths, webs, corks, leadlines, twines and "Little Vicky" knives, which are known among locals as the handiest pieces of equipment in commercial fishing boats.

Feb 26, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent.

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Feb 26, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Feb 26, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

FRISCO, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys will introduce Mike McCarthy as the ninth coach in franchise history Wednesday. The club made the announcement Tuesday, a day after McCarthy reached agreement on a deal to replace Jason Garrett.
