  1. It’s sometimes funny why we end up on any part of the web… one thing leads to another and soon you’re distanced from an original intent. I came here, eventually, after originally checking the spelling of sedentary at thefreedictionary.com – “sedentary” referenced “barnacle” which made me interested to see what a barnacle looked like so I typed a Google search for images of them, one of which referenced this site. I want to thank you for posting the image of a barnacle-encrusted red rock crab, and that the barnacles could be eaten as well… I had no idea they could nor what they’d taste like ;D

  2. You know a crab has been well travelled with lots of barnacles and bits attached, its also a great indicator of size/maturity and probably a strong taste. Make a perfect potted crab pate from the brown meat.

    Where was this? What time of year also
    🙂

    1. Thanks for the comment and question JohnWS. The red rock crab in the pic was found during a beach exploration at Point White on the southwest side of Bainbridge Island, June 15 (2011). I lack a highly discerning palate but will have to do some taste testing of crabs with different amounts of adornment next time I have some side by side. Got a favorite process or seasonings for your pate?
