The season's first snow crabs are seen on a boat in the Sea of Japan, off the coast of Kyoto Prefecture, on Nov. 6, 2017. A fishing ban on snow crabs in the Sea of Japan between Toyama and Shimane prefectures was lifted at midnight the previous day. A 42-year-old fisherman whose ship caught some snow crabs soon after the ban was lifted said, "This year's catch is better that last year's." (Mainichi)
