Spill could set crab fishermen back

Crab fisherman are still waiting for a decision from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger about the potential postponement of the fishing season.

On Saturday, crab fisherman met and voted to postpone the season until it was determined commercial and sport fisherman could fish crab safely after oil from Cosco Busan tainted Bay Area and Golden Gate waters.

The request for a delay comes just a week and a half before Thanksgiving, when Dungeness crab is holiday favorite in The City.
