Dungeness crab season starts Monday in Oregon, southern Washington

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Dungeness crab season in Oregon and southern Washington starts Monday at 12:01 a.m. after a month-long delay caused by insufficient meat content.
The season typically opens Dec. 1, but can be pushed back to ensure better quality.
Hugh Link, a spokesman for the Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission, said it was disappointing not to have fresh crab for the holiday, but waiting until they were nice and full was the right thing to do.
Though the season doesn't start until Dec. 31, crabbers can start setting their pots in the ocean Friday at 8 a.m.
Meanwhile, the Northern California crab fishery has been delayed until Jan. 15.
