In Alaska, there are 3 main varieties of crabs:
They feed on various marine animals, such as worms, clams, mussels, snails, and other crustaceans and fish, and they in turn are preyed upon by various fish in the high seas.
Alaska crab fishing takes place during the fall months (see season chart) in the waters off the northern coast of Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. The commercial harvest takes place over a very short season, and the catch is shipped around the world.
In crab fisheries, only authorized size male crabs can be caught for sale. All females and undersized males are returned alive directly to the sea as soon as each pot is hoisted aboard the fishing boat.
Fishing for Alaska crab, especially king crab, is very dangerous, and the mortality rate among anglers is roughly 80 times the average worker’s mortality rate.
It is the largest and most impressive of all the crabs caught in the world. The ``Alaska King crab`` has an unbeatable texture and flavor.

The largest and most flavorful Dungeness crab comes from Alaska, prized for its sweet flavor and tender, flaky meat.
