The Seafood Trade Relief Program (STRP) is providing up to $530 million in direct support for commercial fishermen. Support is based on the net quantity of the applicant’s share of the total production of caught and sold seafood from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019. Pricing is on a per pound basis and reflects the estimated impact of trade disruptions to the seafood industry.
Relief per pound:
Crab (Dungeness): $0.47
