TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — There's only one week left in Florida's stone crab season.

The commercial and recreational harvests of stone crab claws close May 15. The next season begins Oct. 15.

Commercial fishermen have complained that the current stone crab season has been largely a bust.

A poor stone crab harvest drives up the price of the seafood delicacy, so some restaurants that regularly feature stone crabs have been promoting other dishes instead.

It's not clear what might be driving down stone crab harvests.


Is the EPA being unrealistic in its timeline to reduce farm runoff into the Chesapeake Bay?
