As deadline looms, frustration mounts, Daily Comet, February 11, 2011:
Eric Blanchard’s business, Cajun Crab, is used to slow going in winter months, when fewer fishermen are out.
But the crabs he’s been buying lately aren’t surviving as much in transit as other crabs do in cold weather.
“They are not living as long as they should,” he said. Out of 10 boxes of crabs shipped, the equivalent of a boxful has been reported dead on arrival in some cases.
“That’s my loss,” he said. “I have to refund that from the shipment.”
