Seafood lovers, it’s time to celebrate!
Today is a happy day for Floridians. It marks the opening of stone crab season!
That pricey but delicious treat is back on the menu for the winter season.
After concerns about the health of this year’s crab haul, Florida Trend magazine kicks off the season with a promising pun.
They say that this year, there’s “claws for optimism” (ha, ha) that Florida stone crabs will be back in abundance.
Last year, hurricanes and the red tide threat did a number on the crab population.
But according to Florida Trend, crabbing insiders have their fingers (or claws) crossed that this year will be better.
