This Crabby Martyr is Joyous!

Great News! The Oregon Dungeness Crab Fishery has become the world's first major crab fishery to be certified "sustainable" under standards set by the international Marine Stewardship Council. http://www.oregonlive.com/business/index.ssf/2010/12/oregons_dungeness_crab_fishery.html

"The Oregon Dungeness crab fishery has demonstrated that they are a model fishery in terms of environmental sustainability and working hard to maintain and improve the overall health of the fishery," said Kerry Coughlin , regional director of the MSC Americas.

My family's traditional Christmas dinner is dungeness crab cooked and served whole so we can crack and enjoy every succulent morsel while we celebrate the season. Good to know our tradition is both local (within 100 miles of our table) and sustainable!
