Alaska Department of Fish and Game

Golden king crab season opens Monday, but fishermen in the western Aleutians are facing a deep cut to their usual quota.

Driven by concern for the crab population, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game has reduced their total allowable catch (TAC) by a quarter.

"There's a 25 percent reduction in the TAC for the western stock this year based on declines in several stock abundance indicators," said Ethan Nichols, the assistant area management biologist for Fish and Game. "We're not exactly sure what's going on, but for the last two seasons, the TAC has not been achieved."
