(Oregon City, OR)  --  The commercial crab seasons in Oregon and Washington are being delayed.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says unusually large areas of warm water have resulted in dangerous levels of toxin found in the crabs.  NOAA scientists say the combination of warm water and low nutrient levels triggered a massive algae bloom.  Oceanographer Dr. Bill Peterson told KATU-TV he hopes the crab seasons can get going before Christmas, as the ocean is cooling and the area containing the toxin has dissipated.
