Dungeness crab season

In just short of a month we will be arriving in Seattle, WA and we will be moving down the west coast through Washington to California.

We have been looking forward to buying and eating Dungeness crab which is one of our favourite picks. I now notice that Dungeness crab season only starts in mid November .

Does this mean that Dungeness crab is off the menu, and if they are not, then where do they come from out of season? It wouldn't be the same if they are not local and/or farm raised somewhere in Asia.

Am I going to end up being a crab-wise disappointed tourist?

Hey stop by for dinner. We are in Olympia 60 south of Seattle and there is a good CG at/near the Tumwater Blvd exit, we are close by. As to the crab we have it year round
although it might be from Alaska.

Season closed August 15th and therefore nothing local and you will find this up and down the OR coast...at least in our looking.

We were in Coos Bay on the 10th and what was available was soft and not recommended. Crab will be better (furmer) and more plentiful in December.

Len and Pat. Thanks for the invite to visit - I wish we had "talked" earlier because we have made plans and reservations already and they don't take us through Olympia. We would have liked seeing you both.

...but now we know, so maybe next time we are in the area

All the best

Dangnabbit - by December we will be in Phoenix, AZ getting ready to go back to The Viking Land.

I guess we will have to try the Alaskan cousin and see what that is like.

We live in Southern Oregon about an hour from Crescent City or about one hour 15 minutes from Brookings, Oregon. We have not been able to get FRESH Dungeness crab for a few years (The Japan tsunamy sp? How do you spell that word?) seems to be long term problem. I have heard the "harvest" goes to the big markets not the little fresh fish stores we liked to visit. Hopefully this year will be better.
