The largest number of huge king crabs can be found exactly in this part of the world; that’s why they are extremely popular in Alaskan coastal cities. The peak season of crab fishing usually is between October and ​January, but it lasts only for several weeks. During this period the restaurants of Juneau, Seward, Anchorage, and other cities serve the freshest king crabs ever. Taste delicious crab legs, rolls, or other snacks—local chefs do their best to cook this special meal!
