COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) — Oregon's commercial crab fishing season is set to open on time after encountering delays during the past two years.

Barring any unexpected weather issues, Oregon crab could begin showing up in stores by the end of next week, Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission director Hugh Link told Coos Bay World (http://bit.ly/1vqc6TB ) in a story Wednesday.

The season is set to open Monday, with testing showing the crab are filled with meat.

"We haven't seen fill percentage rates in crab like this in my 11 years that I've been doing this," Link said.

Crab boats can begin dropping gear at 8 a.m. Friday and begin pulling up pots at 9 a.m. Monday.

The 73-hour gap marks an increase from the old 64-hour pre-soak period so that the season will start during daylight hours to improve safety and enforcement efforts.

Fishermen and processors have agreed on an opening price of $3.10 a pound, up 45 cents from last season's start. Market forces will drive the price up or down as the season progresses.
