Samoan Crab

Interesting article in the food section of the daily paper this week about Samoan Crab from the N Shore, and that they are supplying some restaurants. Does anyone know of a retail outlet where one could get it for home prep?

      Thanks for the suggestion...should have guessed that, but haven't been thinking crab when I was there looking for fish.

        I'm not a fan of Samoan Crab due to the sometimes bitter flavor.

        Fortunately Kona Crab (pic below) is back in Season, just made some for lunch.
