Supply and demand my friend. Suppliers looking for top dollar and most of the supply is purchased in Asia. I'm in the crab business and I can tell u right now 99% is being exported. Restaurants stopped purchasing crab because people aren't willing to pay 25$lb when u can eat King crab geoduck for around the same price. What can locals do? Get a couple prawn traps and crab traps maybe a dingy and catch em yourself! Cost be a one time thing and the traps can be reused. Bait is fairly cheap as well you could use left overs. From what I understand the area around English Bay to Granville Island is closed to commercial fishing so stocks will be plentiful.!

I think you can get your fill though at a cheaper rate. If you spend an equal amount on crab or lobster it'll be tiny or not meaty. Although I do agree over priced though.

Teemway. Last week it was $15.99/lb, or $14.99/lb if you buy 3+lbs. They also had "not live" BC spot prawn for $7.99/lb

Why doesn't China develop a hankering for pests instead.

Just shy of $17/lbs at Pricemart Grandview last night.
Even lobsters are cheaper per pound.

So I got a lobster and mussels too.

Too pricey for me now.
I had some people over and we played around some.
I think that's it for me unless my friends want to bankroll them again.

I remember back in the day they would be like $7.99 lol ... damn I used to plow through them, me and my co-worker went through like 8lbs in a day.
Damn if I did that now, with a decent bottle of wine, would set me back like $200 for a casual sit at home.

Would've been nice if they didn't ban that one guy that would always cut us in on spot prawn deals.
