Looking for crab off the boat in the East Bay
We are hosting a dinner with some friends and the appointed cook would like to find a place to get live whole crab or live then cracked and cleaned (uncooked then put on ice) in the East Bay--preferably off a boat. Any ideas or where to do so in SF if not the East Bay--which pier, etc? He has gotten them in Oakland Chinatown or Rancho 66 but they haven't always been cracked. We need about 15 crabs. If you know the price, that would be helpful too.
If the point is to buy directly from the fisherman, then Hudson Fish might work for you.
Further north in San Rafael, Western Boat and Tackle.
That's a big enough quantity that you could possibly work out a special order and handling by calling ahead. I haven't patronized either, but they've been recommended on the board before.
