One of the most valuable fisheries off the West Coast, the Dungeness crab fishery ranges from Monterey Bay north into Oregon and Washington. The crab season usually runs from November 15 through June 30.
This West Coast delicacy is being brought into the ports of Monterey Bay, Half Moon Bay and San Francisco. Get to your nearest central coast port to buy off the boat, or to your nearest local seafood market.
