Commercial crab season opens under new law
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The first haul of the commercial crab season should start arriving at Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco Friday.
Crabbers began pulling their traps at 12:01 a.m. Friday.
New regulations cap the number of traps a boater can set at 500. It's intended to give smaller operators a chance for a good haul.
Fisherman will get $3 a pound for their catch.
And you'll likely pay between $5.50 and $6.50 per pound for fresh crab at local retailers.
