The Crab is a fish that can be found in the ocean during any season using a Crab Pot. It can also be dropped by a Rock Crab (15% chance) or Lava Crab (25% chance) when slain. Like all fish caught from the crab pot, it cannot be eaten unless it is cooked.

Crabs can be placed in a Fish Pond, where they will reproduce every 3 days. The initial pond capacity is 3 fish, but the capacity can be increased to 10 by completing three quests. Typical output includes red Crab Roe (Gold.png80g), Seaweed, and various Trash items, but more valuable items are possible starting at population 5.
