If the report from Kinyradio.com is to be believed, your assertion is not correct (aside from the bit about goldens). Would be interesting to find out what's going on...

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game announced Tuesday that the personal use and commercial red and blue king crab fisheries in Section 11-A will be closed for the 2009 season.
The decision to close the fisheries is based on the results of the annual red crab stock assessment survey for the Juneau area which was completed on June 10th.
According to the department, catch per unit effort data from the annual assessment survey showed adult males at or near the long term average, but that young males and all females are at or near their lowest levels on record.
