    Crab fishing got way safer after they gave the boats assigned quotas. Previously they had to catch all the crab they could before the fishery shut down no matter what the weather.

    That and with the quota system there aren't 100's of boats out there like there used to be because smaller operations sell their quotas to bigger boats/operations. Fewer boats means fewer chances at loss of life.
