ALL HANDS ON DECK FOR CRAB CLAWS

Tarpon Springs

Crabbers Michael Fox of New Port Richey, left, Jeffrey Feczko of Ketchikan, Alaska, and Daniel Skelton of New Port Richey unload one of two tubs containing 158 pounds of stone crab claws that they harvested from the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday, the first day of stone crab claw season. The bounty was bound for Pelican Point Seafood in Tarpon Springs, which purchases and cooks the stone crab claws before selling them to local consumers and restaurants. The claws are loaded into baskets and are prepared for eight minutes in a container of boiling water at Pelican Point Seafood. Stone crab claw season will continue through May 15.
