Oh yum! I love crab! So interesting seeing the pots like this.

Simona Carini

Ciao Alicia. I have always been impressed by the way they are orderly stacked and organized. They tell a story of experience and attention to details.

Glad you like my photo, Paz.


Great in sepia! I love old crab pots! Our Chesapeake blue crabs are much smaller than your Dungeness, so our pots are also much smaller. The pots are very photogenic whatever the size though. We also put our females back in the water, but many people don't do that as it is not in the rules of crabbing. Also, the crabs have to measure at least 5 inches across the back.


I remember nasse on the laguna di Venezia, a childhood memory. I'm not sure if they were for crabs or for something else, but I assume so, since we often ate the local 'granseole', a big, tasty crab. Your picture brought me back of twenty years ..

Simona Carini

Ciao Lynne. I have heard about blue crab, but never tasted its meat. It sounds like the fishing rules are similar. The minimum size for Dungeness is 6 1/4 inch.

Ciao Caffettiera. I have never tasted a granseola. I am glad the photo brough back pleasant memories.
