SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Crab boats returned to Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco Thursday, with the first Dungeness crab of the 2012 season. The haul was brought to restaurants early in the afternoon.
A fisherman, who did not give his name, told KCBS the crabs look healthy and strong, with the quality excellent. The fisherman also expressed a sense of relief.
