Kano-gani crab (male snow crab)

Snow crab, which has puffy, sweet meat, is a highly prized ingredient. The name of the male snow crab varies from region to region. In Ishikawa Prefecture, it is called “kano-gani.” A typical local wintertime food, it is shipped to other regions with a light blue tag on it. Our recommendation is boiled crab with vinegar sauce. Raw crab is good for grilling or sukiyaki. The fishing season is from November 6 to the middle of March of the following year. Fishermen try to protect the resources, for example, by voluntarily setting a no-fishing zone.
