This season, the unpredictable tanner crab population isn't looking so good for Aleutian fishermen. At least, that's what the state's trawl survey indicated this summer.

But the City of Unalaska has joined an emergency petition urging the Alaska Board of Fisheries to take another look.

At a City Council meeting last week, Councilor Frank Kelty explained the survey showed low numbers for female tanners. That's led the Alaska Department of Fish and Game to consider serious conservation measures.

"The whole fishery could be shut down," said Kelty.
