Juneauites will have the chance to catch king crab in the waters surrounding their backyards. It’s the first time in six years a winter personal use fishery has been opened in Juneau area waters.

A total of 1,965 king crab have been allocated for the fishery. That’s up from 1,300 crab when the fishery was last opened in 2011.

“I would say it’s on the higher end of what we’ve had for a winter fishery allocation,” said Karla Bush, Southeast Region Shellfish and Groundfish Program Coordinator for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.
