Live King Crab has been given the royal treatment ever since the popularization of the TV show “The Deadliest Catch.” Since that point, we started bringing them in twice a year, based on seasonal availability. The season happens twice; end of October until December and end of February until April. How long’s the season? Roughly 3-8 weeks, depending on how fast they hit their quota.
King crab is quota fished and protected to be sure that we continue to enjoy the species for the rest of our lives. Where do they come from? Denmark or Juno Alaska. We’re really liking the Denmark these days. It’s a new found favourite and an invasive species there. We are doing them a favour by indulging.
How Big is a Crab? 6-14 pounds
How many can a Crab feed? 4-6 people
Is it expensive? Yes. It averages about $500 a crab, so share it for God sake!
Does it live up to the hype? Definitely. I’ve only had one person leave unhappy and that was because they discovered they were allergic.
How do I get one? Fill out the form below to be put on the King Crab List. You will be emailed notification when the season is open and bookings can be made. You need to book ahead. There are not many “free agents” if you decide to play the game.
