Dungeness Crab Prices 2012

Time for the yearly thread! Who has crab and how much are they charging? Cooked and crack or live.

  1. Commercial season starts Thursday. The Chron reports today that prices may be higher than last year.

    1. Any sightings yet? I'm ready for some crab!

        Tokyo Fish Market (Berkeley): 6.99 live, 7.99 cooked. I didn't get any.

      2. $5.99 at Ranch 99 in El Cerrito/Richmond.

        1. $6.00/lb, at 99Ranch in Mountain View. They do not look very big.

            Got two nice ones at Alioto-Lazio. 2lbs. 2 oz. each for a very reasonable $5.25 lb. Free parking in front of store. (Live price.) Yielded 1 lb. 6 oz. of meat.

                The hotline (Saturday 11/17) at Pillar Pt Harbor said the boats are in and selling live crab. No mention of price.

                  I picked up two crabs from a boat at Pillar Pt. Harbor this past Thurs. (11/15) for $5/lb. Got there in the late afternoon so they were a little under 2lb each, but still decent meat/weight ratio, made for a good steamed crab dinner and leftovers into crab bisque.

                  Thanks Wolfe, but I can't take too much credit. "So round, so firm, so fully packed!"

            1. $3.99/lb at Lucky Seafood in Oakland Chinatown. 1-2 lbers.

                Also 3.99 at lucky seafood on east 12st, easier parking. Got a nice 2 pounder and the tank was packed.
