Argentina isn’t particularly known for its king crab. Most people don’t think of this South American country when naming countries known for it. Yet, Argentina offers good king crab in certain areas. The mouthwatering king crab is caught locally and, for crab enthusiasts, the fact it can be caught locally is a major win. When seafood is captured in the country instead of being imported, it tastes fresher and is less processed. In general, when choosing a good place to get seafood people will take into account how far the fish has to travel before it reaches a plate.

Crabbing for king crabs takes place in the Beagle Channel, about 150 miles long and three to eight miles wide. This strait is close to Chile and the western portion lies entirely in the country. On the Argentinean side, travelers can partake in king crabbing and hopefully leave the day with dinner in hand. Travelers to the area can add this tour to their itinerary by finding a local tour group that takes foreigners fishing.

This particular type of king crab is called the lithodes santolla, a species found off the Pacific coasts of South America. This outing can be an all-day event and is more suited to those with a moderate level of fitness. Hopeful crab catchers have to fight the waves while trying to locate and capture them.
