Sig Hansen and Keith Colburn were busy with multiple appearances and interviews throughout the week out on the east coast. In the youtube clip above the skippers compare crab fishing to stock trading on Fox Business News. And just a couple of days ago the two fishermen appeared with Jim Kramer on CNBC’s ‘Mad Money’ where the discussion again centered on a comparison between the economy/stock market and fishing. (See video) Interesting to note–King crab prices were good last fall as the pricing contracts were made prior to the stock market fallout however, both skippers attest in their interviews that Opilio crab prices fell 25% by the time that fishery took place in January.
Sig Hansen was spotted chatting with none other then Paul McCartney at the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Forces For Nature Benefit held in New York.
