 EPA: Federal Register: Modification of the Norton Sound Low Offshore Airspace Area; AK
Specifically, this action modifies the Norton Sound Low airspace area in the vicinity of the Deering Airport, AK, by lowering the controlled airspace floor to 1,200 feet mean sea level (MSL) and expanding the area to a 45-nautical mile (NM) radius of the airport.
A review of the airspace configuration at Nome, Alaska, revealed that an exclusion for the Nome Class E airspace was not needed; this resulted in a minor change to the legal description of the Norton Sound Low area, which removed the exclusion for the Nome, Alaska, Class E airspace.
Norton Sound Low airspace areas are published in paragraph 6007 of FAA Order 7400.9N dated September 1, 2005, and effective September 15, 2005, which is incorporated by reference in 14 CFR 71.1.

 SitNews - Fish Factor: Alaska's king crab harvests By Laine Welch
In the late 1970's and early '80's, a flotilla of large boats from elsewhere would steam into Norton Sound and take away two million pounds of king crab in a week.
Norton Sound is not just the source of Alaska's only summer king crab - it also is the state's first winter crab fishery.
Norton Sound harvesters average $3.00 a pound for their king crab ($4.00 in the winter), and the fishery brings in more than $1 million to the region each year.
