Stone Crabbers Strike against Joe’s Stone Crab. Say they low balled the Wholesale price.

Joe’s defended the price as appropriate for the start of the seven-month season for stone crabs, saying it has never set wholesale rates this high on Day One.

He said he did not want to be stuck overpaying for claws before he got a sense of how much supply would be out there this year. “If the price drops, I’m stuck,’’ he said. [email protected] 22:57
