Tugboat Tackles Ice for Bering Sea Crabbers

Monday, May 07 2012

The crab fleet is in a race against time. The Bering Sea has been covered in record-setting ice since the season got underway in January and with just a few weeks left, fishermen still have millions of pounds of snow crab to catch. As KUCB’s Stephanie Joyce reports, boats are going to extremes to finish in time, with a little help from a tugboat stationed on St. Paul Island.

Concerned fisherman on Monday, May 07 2012:

What good will that do? That ice is constantly moving...
