Top: Juneau fisherman Dick Gregg watches as Alaska Glacier Seafoods' dock crew Leo Ortega, Geronimo Garcia and Ricardo gomez sort Dungeness crab Sunday at the Auke Bay facility. The summer commercial season ends Aug. 15. According to southeast fishermen, the catch has been slow this summer and prices lower than last year. "Crab are a discretionary commodity," Gregg, owner of the F/V Sunrise and a fisherman since 1964, said. "Just like everything else we can feel the economic crunch in fishing... Maybe just like the big auto companies we could use a clunker program."
