I had heard that they were going to open rock and Dungeness crab fishing along the Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo coasts. Was that decision reversed?
Edited to add that's still over a month late and I don't think this area makes up a significant portion of the crab fishery. This has to be an awful impact for the people who depend on this season.
Poor Sunset magazine ran a big December cover story full of Dungeness crab recipes!
