This week marked the official end of stone crab season- one that, according to many crabbers, was a rough one.

Final figures on the season’s haul won’t be available for a number of months, but seafood wholesalers and restaurant owners told the Herald-Tribune the crabs seemed a bit off this year, with many having different claws.

The crabs also weren’t close to shore this year- most boats that had decent size hauls had to go as far as 50 miles out. It was a far cry from when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission predicted before the season, when they forecasted a bounty of stone crab.
