Live Dungeness Crab is available all year round, trap caught along the pacific coast of Canada and Washington. Dungeness crab vary between 1 – 5 lbs. Seafood Watch has given the Dungeness crab a sustainable seafood rating of ‘Best Choice’. Dungeness crabs have a wide, long, hard shell, which they must periodically moult to grow; this process is calledecdysis. They have five pairs of legs, which are similarly armored, the foremost pair of which ends in claws the crab uses both as defense and to tear apart large food items.
About one-quarter of the crab’s weight is meat. The flesh has what is considered to be a delicate flavor and slightly sweet taste.
Shipment is by air, truck and ocean container depending on the customer’s need and time restraints.
