EUREKA, Calif. (AP) - Commercial fishermen on the North Coast of California are getting ready for the start of Dungeness crab season.

The Eureka Times-Standard reports that the season is scheduled to kick off on Sunday and not be delayed as in previous years. The crab season off the Central California coast has already begun.

State officials tell the newspaper they are expecting an average or below-average year in the number of crabs after several good years statewide.

Crab fishermen are operating under a new law this year that limits the number of traps they can set. The idea is to help smaller, local fishermen compete with larger boats.
