Dungeness Crab, Fresh & Local
the crustacean fixation is real
When we say, “Boat to Plate” we mean it!
When buying fish and seafood, freshness matters—the fresher the better! That’s why Fisherman’s Market owner and commercial fisherman, Ryan Rogers, travels up and down the Pacific Northwest coast throughout the year to ensure our customers have access to fresh, local Dungeness crab.
The coveted crustaceans are brought from the boat to the Market within hours of pickup from the docks. The fresh hauls of crab are delivered by the Fisherman’s Market F-250 pickup truck, powered by recycled veggie oil from the Market’s fish and chips fryers.
Clawsome News for Crustaceans lovers!
In addition to being a full service fish market and restaurant, Fisherman’s Market is one of the largest Dungeness crab retailers in Oregon and the only live Dungeness crab seafood restaurant in town!

“Dungeness crab are the tastiest on the market,” said Ryan Rogers, the longtime commercial fisherman and owner of Fisherman’s Market. “We always love supplying our community with the best local, sustainable seafood available. It’s because of our relationships with local fishers that we are able to continue to do so, and we are thankful to each of them.”
When buying Dungeness crab freshness matters—the fresher the better!
Dungeness crab has a sweet, mild and slightly nutty taste with tender body meat and leg meat which is slightly firmer. This tasty crab has meat so savory that many prefer to eat it simply boiled in salted water, cracked and consumed.
Not only is Dungeness a great source of protein, it’s rich in vitamins and minerals. Crab meat is also low in fat and contains Omega-3 polyunsaturated acids—all shellfish are a good source of Selenium but crab meat is particularly rich in it.
Learn how to cook up this sweet crustacean meat!
Dungeness Crab | Live Crabs
- Keep live crabs loosely covered in the refrigerator up to 12 hours
- Grasp crabs carefully from the rear end, between the legs, and put in a pan to make sure they fit, with 3 to 4 inches of clearance below pan rim
- Remove crabs and fill pan with enough water to cover crabs by 2–3 inches
- Cover pan and bring water to a boil over high heat
- One at a time, grasp crabs as described above and plunge them headfirst into the boiling water; if you have too much water, ladle out excess and discard
- Cover pan and start timing; when water resumes boiling, reduce heat to a simmer
- Cook 1.5– 2.5 pound crabs for 15 minutes and about 20 minutes for 3 pound crabs
- Drain crabs; to be able to handle quickly, rinse briefly with cool water
Dungeness Crab | Pre-cooked Crabs
- Place a steamer basket in a large pot with enough water to reach the bottom of the basket
- Once the water is boiling, place the crabs inside, season and cover
- Steam the crabs for approximately 5 minutes or until the meat is hot throughout
