    They were pretty successful with restocking efforts in Russia.

    I got a laugh out of this line:
    "Then, every day until December, divers will descend, hoping to gain a better understanding of how the crabs are faring."
    That's awfully optimistic for the Kodiak area.

    According to Stichert, a variety of reasons contributed to the crash -- over-harvest; changing ocean conditions, including changes to currents and warming temperatures; and increased predation from groundfish.
    I love how they always tack on climate change and natural predators for reasons a fishery dies out. Let's call a spade a spade and thank our forefathers for bulldoze raping the crab out.
