Seadrift Seafood Market is committed to the freshest Live Dungeness Crab Nanaimo with the very best local fisherman and the people who have dedicated their lives to providing healthy, high-quality, sustainable seafood in Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.

Our whole wild-caught LIVE Vancouver Island Dungeness Crab is the FRESHEST possible. We are located on the central Vancouver Island Coast in a city with many commercial fishing vessels in port. We buy live crabs directly from the fishermen to ensure freshness.

FRESH picked crabmeat. We cook our crabs to perfection, then we quick chill them to stop the cooking process and to shrink the meat away from the shell, allowing our very experienced crab pickers to pick nice big chunks of Vancouver Island Dungeness Crab.

With Fresh Live Crab from Seadrift Seafood Market the culinary possibilities are endless!
