Hello and Happy New Year to all hounds. I found live Dungeness at R99 in Foster City today for $7/lb. Ouch. Obviously, they had a long trip from Washington or points north, but still ... the rolling average live price at R99 and Princeton Harbor off the boats for the previous three years is $4.75/lb. I can only hope that supply goes up and demand drops after New Year's.
This will probably be the only time this season I fork over two Jacksons for a crab dinner. What a terrible season this has turned out to be. I fully expect the salmon opener to be just as bleak this spring.
