Fishing quotas for Aleutian Islands golden king crab are up again this year.

East of Atka, commercial fishermen can harvest 4.3 million pounds. To the west, they can take almost 2.9 million.

Those numbers represent 12- and 15-percent increases over last season, according to management biologist Miranda Westphal of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

"Things are looking good," said Westphal. "We're seeing some recruitment coming in. We're seeing females with eggs. We're seeing that both stocks look like they're in fairly good shape right now."
