Stone crab season a promising one
Florida stone crab landings are higher so far this season compared to last season, pushing prices down.
The season began Oct. 15 and runs through mid-May. “There is good production this year. Supply is definitely going to outweigh the demand,” said one supplier. Landings in South Florida are stronger than last year, while north Florida is slower because of bad weather.
“Supply is better from the Keys to Naples than it is north of Naples at present,” said one Florida official.
