Crabbers are reporting a sharp shortage in their catch this season. With the Fourth of July rush on the crustaceans right around the corner, restaurants are scrambling to cover the demand. Gigi Barnett has more on what’s causing the shortfall.
This is the season for crabs and customers to flood into Jesse
Lowers’ Crab Shack and Fish Market in Essex. The customers are
coming…the crabs, not so much.
“There’s definitely been a shortage and you have to order crabs early for that reason,” said Lowers.
