A Slidell crab processor says his business is suffering because Hurricane Isaac knocked many crabbers out of action.

Gary Bauer says sunken boats, damaged docks and a lack of electricity and ice are among the problems crabbers face. An assessment Friday by the state's seafood promotion board says crab harvests suffered significant disruption due to Isaac. Disruption for shrimp and finfish was described as moderate while oyster production will be limited until October.
