This weekend, I went to an Italian place that offered a pasta special with ‘local’ dungeness crab. I was a bit surprised since I hadn’t read anything about the crab season opening and asked the server about the season. The reply was that the season opened just a few days ago.
After the server left to let us ponder our choices for a few minutes, I looked for news about dungeness crab season in California on my phone and didn’t see any recent news pieces about it. That leads me to wonder- is it common to see non-local crab advertised as local like that? Have you seen it?
