Dungenous Crabbing (Seasonal)
Found in the eelgrass beds and bottoms of the North American West Coast, the Dungeness crab is a famed delicacy in the region. This species of crabs gets its name from one of its popular habitat, which is the Dungeness Spit in the Strait of Juan De Fuca. This particular area in the Pacific Ocean lies between the US, and Canada is one of the most famous habitats for the Dungeness. Catching this crab is a popular sporting event for crabbers as they compete to find the largest, most meaty crab and boast it.
Unlike crabbing for the smaller species, Dungeness crab is more rewarding as it is quite large. This longer living species is termed by many chefs to be one of the finest ones in the world. While per LB price for a Dungeness crab can be $49.99 to $59.99, catching it yourself is fun at a whole new level.
