Live Rock Crab
This product is available during these seasons:
Note: Live crab is alive when packed for shipping. We do not guarantee it will be live upon delivery. It will, however, be fresh and safe to eat.
Our live local rock crabs (Cancer anthonyi, Cancer productus, Cancer antennarius) average 1 to 1.1 pounds. They are trap harvested in the cool waters of the Pacific Ocean off Southern California and Baja. This Pacific rock crab is an excellent local alternative to both Pacific dungeness crab and Florida stone crab. They are caught year-round, peaking during spring and summer months.
This rock crab is as fresh as you can get because we purchase directly from reputable fishermen who take great pride in providing the highest quality seafood. Crabs are caught and immediately iced and brought to our live tanks where they are held until you order. We package our live seafood with care, keep cold in insulated boxes and ship overnight with FedEx so that it reaches your door fresher than the vast majority of most supermarkets and restaurants.
Did you know? Crabs have the ability to regenerate their claws and limbs, and studies show that their claws grow back quickly, thus ensuring the sustainability of this fishery.
