(Seattle, WA) -- Dungeness crab harvest is being pushed back for part of Oregon and the entire Washington coast. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife announced that the harvest grounds stretching from Klipsan Beach, Washington, to Cape Falcon, Oregon, will not open until February 1st. Surveys found legal-sized males did not have enough recoverable meat in their shells. The Dungeness crab harvest is Washington's most valuable commercial fishery. During the past decade, the seasons have generated on average nearly 48-million to crabbers.
