The Golden King Crab Story
Wildly-Sustainable King Crab from the Far Reaches of the Pacific
In pursuit of the best-tasting, most sustainable King crab in the world, we travel to the far northern reaches of the Pacific Ocean. Here, on the rocky slopes of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska, we fish for Golden King crab at depths that can reach over 2,000 feet. Great distances, a challenging habitat and hybrid fishing methods make the The Golden King crab story unique. The great effort to catch Goldens does not go unrewarded, however, as their pristine habitat give Golden King crab both outstanding taste and unmatched sustainability.

Dispatches from Captain Rip!
Check out Keyport’s periodic dispatches from Captain Rip Carlton of the F/V Patricia Lee while he and his crew fish for Golden King crab.
Golden King crab is unique. From the remote location of the fishery in the Aleutian Islands to the great depths of its habitat, Goldens are particularly challenging to catch. The expertise needed to harvest Golden King crab is also unique and only five fishing vessels in Alaska are equipped as Golden King crab boats.
Captain Rip Carlton has been fishing for Golden King crab for decades and shares his is unique knowledge in our latest series of Captain Logs.
