How long can I wait to cook fresh dungeness crab before it goes bad?

LSNelsons | Jun 2, 2008 11:18 AM

We catch a lot of dungeness crab and I ussually clean it and cook it right away but I am wondering if anyone knows just how long you can keep it refrigerated to cook later before it goes bad. I have heard you have to cook it within an hour of cleaning but then I have heard a few hours if refrigerated it ok---
