The Alaska Department of Fish and Game today announced a Bering Sea snow crab total allowable catch (TAC) of just under 54 million pounds for the 2013-14 season.
That's down nearly 19 percent from last season's TAC.
Although the fishery is scheduled to open on Oct. 15, the industry traditionally waits until after the first of the year to take snow crab.
