BAN RUSSIAN KING CRAB

Jim Stone, an Alaska crab fisherman, responded to a video about the potential impact of a ban on Russian crab imports to say first, the estimates of the percentage of domestic product were wrong, golden king crab was left out, and secondly, that much of the Russian product is still illegal, and a ban would go a long way towards cleaning up a pirate fishery, which may have cost the Alaskan industry overall $600 million in artificially lower revenues.
