Shutdown may ground crabbing fleet, spoil industry's richest month...
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Fishing
Alaska fisheries are a topic near and dear to Halibutboy's heart. If you've seen that TV show _The Deadliest Catch_ you know that crabbers literally risk life and limb during the short season during which they make all their money... but this year's catch may not happen due to the Federal government shutdown.
Can't Alaska subsidize them instead???
