In Alaska, most blue king crab are caught in the 'Saint Matthew Island' fishery, although populations exist in other parts of the state. Some of Alaska's largest blue king crab can be found in the waters surrounding the Pribilof Islands, in the Bering Sea.
'Blues are typically harvested in fall, or winter fisheries - which is when their legs have the greatest in-fill of sweet, succulent meat.
