Crab

Dungeness Crab are a staple to the west coast diet. In Clayouquot Sound, crab are caught year round. Most other areas used for commercial harvesting of crab are closed for some portions of the year. All Dungeness Crab that are sold must be male, hard shelled, and 165mm across the back (point to point). Females are returned to the water when they are caught so that they can reproduce. All crab molt from their shells and grow a new shell. Every time they do this, they get larger. It takes about 5 molts for a crab to be large enough for market.

Trilogy has crab available all year round, no matter how you like it: live, killed and cleaned, cooked, or  already shucked.
