The Dungeness Crab or Cancer magister at Clayton Beach Along Washington State Rt 11, Chuckanut Drive, near the city of Bellingham, Clayton Beach is along the base of the Chuckanut Mountains located in Larrabee State Park in Northwest Washington. The Dungeness Crab gets its common name from the town of Dungeness, Washington, now called Old Town Dungeness, where the first commercial harvesting of the crab was done. The Dungeness Crab is the only commercially important crab in the state of Washington's territorial waters and was the first shellfish harvested commercially on the North Pacific Coast.
