The Alaska Department of Fish & Game's projection from landings and efforts during the first weeks of the dungeness fishery indicate the harvest will exceed the required 2.25 million pounds for a normal season length. For the 2007-08 season, the initial prediction was 3.5 million pounds and the eventual total season harvest was 5.4 million pounds.
