Crab Ship Seized

SEATTLE — Owners of a Russian trawler loaded with crabs are being investigated for possible violations of U.S. fishing laws following a raid on the vessel at a shipyard in Seattle.

U.S. investigators are trying to determine whether three other Russian boats illegally loaded the 127,350 kilograms of snow and king crabs onto the Northern Wind while inside the U.S. exclusive economic zone, according to documents filed in U.S. District Court.
