COOS BAY — After weeks of disputes between fisherman and processors, the Oregon commercial pink shrimp season finally got going this week, the Oregon Trawl Commission announced Thursday.

Pricing negotiations kept boats at the dock for more than a week after the season’s April 1 start. Fisherman settled for a tiered price structure similar to the one used last year, with prices depending on the size of the product landed.

Oregon’s pink shrimp fishery yielded 49,636,107 pounds in 2012, with Coos Bay leading the state at 22,347,227 pounds.
