Cliff Mass, the NW Weatherman, says that the Blob is back again.
This is not good news for albacore fishermen. We have already seen the amount of our catches decrease. The American fleet as a whole is catching half of the normal amount...5,000 tons instead of 10,000-15,000 tons. This has elevated the price of our blast-bled super cold albacore up to the highest level in years. It probably will cause a price hike to the consumer. When the base price of your product goes up a dollar a pound, then a price adjustment is necessary unfortunately.

Cliff Mass's Weather blog on The Blob is noteworthy here: especially referring to September 11th entry about the blob. Here he concludes that the Blob is the offspring of persistent high pressure. July sea surface temperatures were normal in the general Northeast Pacific
but August and September saw an increase of 1-2  degrees. He also claims that the Blob has nothing to do with global warming.
