Don't Eat Those Crab
Seems like it was just yesterday I pointed us to the Times- Standard's report that crab season would be open. We also saw the spreadsheet with the testing results that showed areas down south having relatively safe crab populations.
Leave it to the Sacramento Bee to report some areas of the coast are being closed to crab fishing again. They seem to have found more crab with domoic acid in them:
" ...the indefinite closure of a 120-mile coastal stretch that was supposed to open Dec. 1. The stretch runs from Point Reyes to Humboldt Bay."
Isn't that roughly the same area prior tests showed low risk of poisoning? Bummer. Those of you that ran out and threw your crab traps out yesterday best take those crab and toss them back into the bay.
