When Crab Was King: The Rise and Fall of the Kodiak King Crab Fishery

A Year-long radio project of the Kodiak Maritime Museum


CRAB 4 They stay alive if you take care of them Runs June 22 thru 28

Crab must be kept alive until they are processed. You can't freeze them until they've been cooked. Back in the early decades of crabbing fishermen didn't have water recirculating tanks to hold the crab, like they do now.
