Marissa B.: Great atmosphere! They use *unsweetened* soy milk in their lattes, which was a bonus. My brother had the "Deadliest Catch" - 2 Eggs Benedict with one salmon cake and one Alaskan king crab cake. Nom!

Dungies have much better flavor than a king crab, in my opinion.......the only thing a king crab has going for it is that it is easier to get the meat out of the shell......not really worth that kind of money, though......

This is making me laugh. I remembered reading the reasons not to buy king crab legs on your AK vacation but couldn't remember the reasons when we were there. I don't like them but did mention it to my husband. He ignored the advice and ordered them at 49th State Brewery in Anchorage AND he neglected to ask what the market price was. He ordered them , said they were pretty awful, didn't even finish them. When the bill came I checked and for two giant crab legs it was $120! I guess that will teach him to listen to the advice from Trip Advisor regulars from now on. ;)

Oh I didn't mean king crab legs are awful, my husband loves them, but the crab he got that night was awful. I just remembered reading here on TA not to go out of your way to buy them in AK because they are probably frozen just like the king crab you can get down here.

Really, Scott? I find the King crab legs pretty tough to get open. If I hadn't had a cracker or scissors or paper towels, I'd have torn up my hands on the king crab. I've actually had my hands bleed from them before when I didn't have the paper towels. I suggest getting a pair of scissors to cut them open and paper towels to hold them when you twist to get the first cracks started.

The following information outlines State of Alaska personal use king crab regulations for waters of Alaska in the Southeast Area. This is a summary of selected personal use regulations and should be used in conjunction with the current Personal Use Statewide Fisheries Regulations.

The daily bag limit is three male king crab per person (all species combined), unless reduced by Emergency Order or as specified per household on the Section 11-A (Juneau Area) red and blue king crab fishing permit.

Now two dominant crab harvests have been canceled for lack of fish. For the first time, the Alaska Department of Fish and Game in October canceled the 2022-2023 harvest of Bering Sea snow crab, and it also announced the second consecutive year of closure for another important harvest, that of Bristol Bay red king crab.

In the short term, loss of the snow and red king crab harvests is devastating. Direct losses from harvest cancellations this year amount to $287.7 million, according to state estimates. Local governments are suffering, too, like the Aleut community of St. Paul, which relies on the crab harvests for more than 90% of its tax revenue.

Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers, a nonprofit trade organization, petitioned the council to use its emergency powers to ban all fishing for six months in areas designated as protected zones for red king crab. In those areas, crabs mate and molt, spending much of their time in a vulnerable soft-shell stage. That puts the crabs at high risk for being crushed and killed by trawl nets that hit or scrape the seafloor, the organization argued.

The council ultimately declined to take such emergency action, which critics said might not be effective and would have unintended consequences. They include pushing the trawl fleet into different territory, where there might be higher incidental catch of salmon or other problems. Instead, the council opted for a plan to study alternatives that include possible fishery closures in the key red king crab mating and molting areas. And the snow crab rebuilding plan it approved leaves open the possibility of a small harvest conducted as the stock recovers, which is important to industry representatives who voiced concerns about losing their position in the wider seafood markets.

There is other Alaska crab on the market, too, though not as celebrated. Harvests of golden king crab, a species smaller than red king crab, are proceeding, and a relatively small harvest of red king crab in Norton Sound, in the Nome area, that is expected to open in 2023, though in two recent years it was shut down because of low stocks. Dungeness crab harvests continue in Alaska, as in other West Coast states. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game last week announced that a tanner crab season will open in 2023 in the Aleutians area.

The Fishery Management Plan includes all species and fisheries for king and Tanner crab (red, blue, and brown king crab, Tanner crab, and snow crab). In-season management of these fisheries is provided by ADF&G in Kodiak (updated October 2011).

Snow crabs reside in the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans, preferring the deep, cold water conditions of these northern seas. Their harvesting season starts in late fall and extends as long as early summer. The Alaskan king crab, on the other hand, has a limited habitat and harvesting season. The large crustaceans reside in the Bering Sea between Alaska and Russia. King crab fishermen harvest them for just a few weeks in the winter.

Snow crab is named for its meat, which turns from red to snowy white when cooked and boasts a sweet, subtly briny flavor. The texture is firm and tends to be more fibrous (easily shredding into pieces) than king crab. Snow crab leg shells are breakable enough for simply cracking open with your hands.

Alaskan king crab legs are now available for order online. Sustainably fished in the cold waters of the Pacific, these crabs offer huge hunks of sweet meat. You can order whole Alaskan king crab, legs, leg pieces, claws, lump meat, or even our new Alaskan king crab mac & cheese.

Norton Sound Seafood House serves up seafood from the deep, pristine ocean waters off of Nome, Alaska. Norton Sound Seafood House is your last chance before boarding for Alaskan salmon, halibut, or king crab, fresh in season. 041b061a72
