Dungeness Crab - Metacarcinus magister (formerly Cancer magister) A species of crab that inhabits West Coast eelgrass beds and water bottoms from Alaska’s Aleutian Islands down the coast of Britsh Columbia and Pacfic Northwest Coast.
This superior shellfish has a distinctive sweet flavour, bright orange shell color when cooked, and tender, flaky white meat. In terms of taste, many seafood lovers believe it is second only to Alaskan King Crab.
It's (former) binomial name, Cancer magister, simply means “master crab” in Latin.
