Since Jan. 4, fishermen and canneries have been in negotiations. As of Thursday, the canneries had increased their price up to $3.25 per pound of tanner crab, which is a 75-cent increase from their initial offer in early January of $2.50. However, on Friday Jan. 27, the fleet turned down the offer, saying it is still too low, considering the extreme situations their job puts them in.
