The crew of the F/V TNT offload a lively bunch of Dungeness Crab bound for the global live markets. Their catch arrives at the dock ready for a ride by truck to Seattle, WA and then onto planes bound for as far away as Korea and China. Great care must be taken to keep the water they are in at the right temperature and salinity, and to make sure that the crabs' legs and claws stay intact. The TNT is owned and operated by Karl Travenshek of Astoria. January, 2013 photo.
