Found Live Crab in Chinatown for Christmas Eve

Joe Arnold | Dec 24, 2005 12:21 PM

I found live crab for Christmas Eve at New Sang Sang Market on Stockton (near Pacific). They have two tanks full and they're going for 7.59/lb.

I spoke with the folks down at Alioto-Lazio Fish Company (who do not have any crab for sale) and they said the reason for the shortage is that Fish & Game cut off crab fishing in Washington, Oregon or northern California until Dec 31st. In addition, there are high seas where fishing is legal and few boats are willing to go out.
