Haida Gwaii's Crab Whisperer at Work

Bluewater Adventures mate Dustin sets out to check the crab pot in the morning, which delivers a fine catch. Male crabs only are kept and Dustin shows us how to tell males and females apart. A lighthouse, pointed motif on the underbelly indicates a male, and crabs with beehive patterns on their belly are females. We also learn how to gently "put to sleep" these fine specimen.
