“Fishermen are happy, customers appear to be happy, so we’re just swamped,” says a tired-sounding Angel Cincotta of Alioto-Lazio Fish Co., a seafood supplier on Fisherman’s Wharf. Dungeness crabs are fat and plentiful this year, and Northern California’s coastal waters have been crowded with boats and traps since the season opened Nov. 15. Monterey Fish Market (1582 Hopkins St., Berkeley) and Sun Fat (2687 Mission St., San Francisco) are both selling them for $4.99 a pound as of press time. Cooked, cracked crab costs more, although some places are running specials. Princeton Seafood Market in Half Moon Bay is selling them for $8.50 a pound, although you can also come to Pillar Point Harbor and buy crabs right off the boat.
