Red rock crab
(Aka Cancer productus)

Red rock crabs are native to the Pacific Ocean and can be found from Alaska to southern California.

They live in rock, gravel or kelp beds in bays, estuaries and rocky areas of the ocean from the low intertidal to at least 90 metres depth.




Notes
1. Harvesting: According to Fisheries Canada, you must measure your crab immediately. Use a caliper device to measure in a straight line through the widest part of the shell. A Dungeness crab must measure at least 165 mm. A red rock crab must measure at least 115 mm. You must immediately release all undersized crabs, as well as all female Dungeness and Red Rock crabs.
