Dungeness Crab Updates 2021

Update: 11/30/2021

We still do not know when Dungeness Crab season will open. The Department of Fish of Wildlife is doing a flyover tomorrow to see the status of whales in the Monterey Bay area. If all goes well and there are no whales in the are, we hope the season will open soon!

Update: 11/17/2021

Commercial Dungeness Crab season is currently delayed due to whales in the Monterey Bay and concerns of entanglement. We don't have an expected open date yet.

APPRECIATION SHOUTOUT to our amigos @hhfreshfishco 💥 Hans, Heidi & Co. have been doing it right for decades — these guys are pioneers of the CSF (community supported seafood) model, and are strong advocates for supporting local fishermen in the process. They connect fishermen to chefs (like Brad @homesoquel pictured here) and provide the Santa Cruz community with seafood of unparalleled quality Every coastal community NEEDS a spot like @hhfreshfishco — as consumers, the more support we show for places like this, the more will pop up! Choosing local means that you are supporting local fishermen, fishmongers, and chefs/restaurants alike. By doing this, we are supporting the overall health of our West Coast communities!

We're so grateful to live in an area where the ocean provides for us. 💙 If you haven't seen or heard, Bluefin Tuna are in the Monterey Bay! ⚓️ The Bluefin we have in are caught via Rod and Reel (see our blog for more info on catch methods) meaning there's zero bycatch. This is the most sustainable way to catch Tuna. You can find Bluefin at all our farmers' markets this week and at our main location in the Santa Cruz Harbor. 🪝🌊
