When people on the west coast of Canada say, “let’s get some crab!”, it’s usually time to buckle up with a few traps and head to a favourite spot on the pier (or the grocery store).
But when we go crabbing at the beach with the kids, it’s strictly catch and release scenario!
Crabbing, kids style!
First, find a rocky beach!
Next, leave no stones unturned! It helps to have a partner!
Aw, so cute!
The only tools required are a small shovel, bucket, and depending on the weather, warm clothes and dry boots! It’s fun to observe the baby crab, watch them scamper and we always make sure that we treat them gently and release them when we are done.
