According to Skipper Steve Thomassen, $8.00 a pound gets you live king crab for supper! He said they decided to sell their catch in Ketchikan to see if there is enough interest locally in bringing king crab to Ketchikan. He is also keeping a list of people who would like to be called when the F/V Marauder calls in Ketchikan in the future.
