      1. I'm going to check tomorrow. I get them from the fish monger at the harbor. Located below Johnny's Harborside. I hope the crab tanks are full. If you want cooked one's most of the stores have them.

        1. Got 12 in Moss Landing harbor on Fri. $5 lb. avg 1 1/2 lbs

          1. Just got my email from Local Catch Community Supported Fishery that says this about the season so far:

            "We expected that we'd be able to make you all thankful for Dungeness crab this week, but it turns out that crab season (which opened last Thursday) has gotten off to a sluggish start. There just don't seem to be that many crabs around quite yet. Fear not... it's very early in a season that lasts until June, so you'll definitely get your crab "fix" before too long. We do have 200 pounds of locally caught Dungeness, which is available first-come, first-served this week on our Web Store - more info below."

            The cooked and cleaned crabs are $14 each.
