How do you keep Dungeness Crabs alive during transit?2021-11-13T01:19:57-08:00

Once the Dungeness Crabs are caught and brought to the dock by our fishermen, they are then put into large, open-top tanks where they will stay for 24 hours in a nutrient filled seawater solution. To prepare the live crabs for shipment, we place bands around their front claws and then put them in cold water to sedate them for their journey. The crabs are then either trucked or flown to their destination within 24 hours.
