Crabbers testify against log storage in pothole

A US Forest Service request to store rafted logs in a bay at the south end of the Wrangell narrows continues to draw opposition from some of Petersburg’s commercial crabbers. The comment period for that proposed, state permit ends today. A handful of local residents testified at a state hearing in Petersburg late last week. They’re concerned about log debris damaging crab habitat and the exclusion of fishermen from the bay.
