Crab Prices Dip, Demand Slows


Crab prices are coming down from an average of $200 a bushel to around $130.

The number of crabs being caught has gone up but demand has still been lower than expected.

Jay Spurry with Bay Hundred Seafood told WBOC that the dip is normal for this time of year as crabbers pick up on where the crabs are in the Bay.
