2011 Norton King Crab Fishery Sets Record Values

This year marked record prices for Norton Sound Red King crab prices. Ex-vessel prices for the crab ranged from $5.04 to $ 5.35 per pound. 24 permit holders participated in the fishery landing over 401,000 pounds of crab. The 2011 season lasted just 33 days. In 1979, over three million pounds of Red King crab was landed; however, the price was then just a meager .75 cents per pound. Because of the exclusive nature of the fishery and the short season, the Norton Red King crab fishery remains largely a local small boat fishery.
