The Dungeness crab inhabits eel-grass beds and muddy to sandy bottoms, from the low intertidal zone to depths in excess of 600 ft. They can be found from the Aleutian Islands in Alaska to south of San Francisco. The crab seldom exceeds 8 inches and averages less than 7 inches of shell width. The Dungeness crab has white-tipped claws and a brownish shell. Twelve male crabs, minimum size 5 ¾ inches may be kept in Oregon, Washington and California have different size regulations.
