Dungeness Crab .99 a pound!

This weekend I went up to Albany to see a friend. On my way back, I stopped at a little Asian Market on Colvin Avenue. I saw Dungeness crabs, and bagged five and proceeded to the counter. The woman promptly declared "Ninety-Nine Cent a Pound!". I then went back and bought 7. It came to 9.57 for all 7 plus the one I previously bagged. Always going back!

    Is it possible that someone mixed them up with Jonah crabs, which look very similar (but are smaller) and are usually in that price range?

      I had the feeling something was fishy....(no pun intended!) The meat was just too flaky and look like arborio rice. Thanks a bunch!
