The Dungeness Crab is a large-shadowed sea creature that moves a bit slower than the others. You can easily catch up to one by following it cautiously, and then catch it by pressing A on your controller. When you get to the location, dive down and swim towards it.

Its seasonality is November through May, just in time for Turkey Day, for players in the Northern Hemisphere. Players in the Southern Hemisphere can spot one at the opposite time of year. There’s no specific time of day you need to worry about, as the Dungeness Crab can spawn at any time.

One thing to keep in mind is that this sea creature is relatively rare. You may get unlucky and not find one for a few hours, so don’t get frustrated if that happens to you. Look out for a large slow moving shadow, and you might find yourself a Dungeness Crab!
