The snow crab has arrived! People braved bad weather and waited in long lines to purchase fresh live or cooked snow crab from Les PĂȘcheries Raymond Desbois from March 26 to 28.

In the week prior to delivery, Quebec City fishmongers were asked one question: when does the snow crab arrive? On March 26, a long line of people waited in the rain to get their hands on the precious snow crab from Les PĂȘcheries Raymond Desbois. The next day, the line formed about 30 minutes before opening. Snow crab season is here.
