Brief updates from Fisherman's Wharf today, where the ongoing pricing dispute between crab fisherman and the seafood processors threatens to damage crustacean-based Thanksgiving dishes. One local fish market owner told SFoodie today that an agreement could still be a few days away, meaning the first shipments won't come pouring in to area seafood emporiums until the Monday after Thanksgiving.

If you need a place to direct your crabbiness, apparently you can't blame the local distributors who agreed to the $2.50 per pound price awhile back. It's the big processors that are holding out for a $2 rate and holding up the whole deal. On the bright side, the crabs will just be bigger and fatter when the crabbers start hauling them in.
