If someone has started a thread tracking the market price of Dungeness crab, I've apparently overlooked it. Melanie? If the last eight years are any indication 1) there will be significant gaps between the spot price off the boats at Princeton (Half Moon Bay), Fisherman's Wharf (which reportedly is doing retail this year and Bodega Bay.

In the markets, you all know where your go-to places are. For me it's always R99. And I hold off until after Thanksgiving for the price to stabilize (when the supply stabilizes).

Median price ranges at R99:
2007: $4.50-$5.00
2008: $4.50-$5.50 (with a spike to $7.00)
2009: $2.00-$4.00 (now *that* was a year, my friends)
2010: $3.00 (pegged at $3 for entire local season)
2011: $4.00 (a bad year overall)
2012: $5.00-$6.00
2013: $5.00-$6.00
2014: $5.00 (a bad year overall)
2015: complete wipeout year. Season cancelled. Domoic acid.
2016: $6.00
2017: bring it on!
