Keys Crabbers Face Challenging Recovery from Irma
Hurricane Irma took its toll on the Florida Lobster season and crabbers are hoping the Stone Crabs save their year.
The Florida Keys were directly impacted by a Category Four hurricane named Irma - you probably all know that. The damage and destruction was unreal, and among the many keys fisherfolks that were hurt badly were the crabbers (and lobster anglers). The lobster season was only a few days old when the hurricane landed, and a lot of the gear was either moved or destroyed or at least disturbed enough to limit their take. They are hoping to recover with a great Stone Crab season.
If you can, buy Stone Crabs that are coming from the Keys.
