Snow crabs are seen on a fishing boat off Kyoto Prefecture in the Sea of Japan on Nov. 6, 2018, after the seasonal fishing ban was lifted for the sea between Toyama and Shimane Prefectures in western Japan. A total of 13 trawlers left Tsuiyama Port in the city of Toyooka, Hyogo Prefecture, to fish off Kyoto Prefecture. On the "Kamikaze-maru" vessel, fishermen landed a net filled with many snow crabs and sorted them in sizes. Daisuke Mano, the 40-year-old captain of the boat, said, "The first priority is the safety of the crew. I will work hard to catch delicious crab."
