Dungeness crab fishermen will begin setting their pots Friday after reaching a price agreement with seafood processors.
With the Oregon Department of Agriculture supervising negotiations, the sides agreed to a minimum price of USD 2.65 (EUR 1.93) per pound, a USD 0.35 (EUR 0.26) increase from a year ago and the highest price ever agreed upon for an opening.
That price is locked in for 24 hours. After that, market conditions dictate pricing.
