crab pots for fishing Dungeness crab
Dungeness crab season is very important on the West Coast for fishermen and people who like crab meat. During crab season, you can see the light from fishing boats at sunset and early in the morning, like in the photo above.
In Trinidad, CA, towers of crab pots can be seen near the harbor.
Dungeness crab is labeled best choice by Seafood Watch because of the sustainable practices applied to the fishery. In particular, female crabs and crabs below a certain size must be put back in the water.
This is my submission to week #27 edition of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook. Savoring the weekly gallery is highly recommended: it's a very special mid-week treat.
The top photo was shot in color and then converted to light sepia.
This post contains the gallery of images submitted to the event.
