A Prized Pacific Northwest Delicacy

Abundant in the Puget Sound and all along the western coastline, Dungeness Crab is a true staple and symbol of the Pacific Northwest — loved for their sweet, mild and slightly nutty-briny taste and tender body meat. Its scientific name, Metacarcinus magister, means, “the master crab” — a title fitting for this fan-favorite crustacean of seafood lovers. Caught in pots with low bycatch, all Dungeness Crab from Dana F. Besecker Co. is brought in for harvest and processing the very same day to lock in premium freshness. Enjoy a whole piece pulled out of the claw for an especially meaty bite, dipped in melted butter or finished with just squeeze of lemon, or shred the delicate meat to add to a favorite crab cake or summer salad recipe.
