I found couple of spots in Belcarra and Burnaby, BC.
There are two kinds of crabs you can catch in Canada: Dungeness Crab and Red Rock Crab.
|BC Dungeness Crab with baby Sea Star|
|Red Rock Crab|
(see above) I have caught big Red Rock Crabs before....they are strong! If you get caught in the claws, it feels like your finger is jammed by the door. It stings for 10 minutes....
Sometimes, you will see barnacles and sea stars on the shells of crabs:
|Small sea star on crab|
|Lots of crabs on a sunny day|
Of course, we have to release the undersize crabs.
So far, my kids love eating them, so we are trying to go catch them whenever we have couple of hours.
