This was taken by a friend of mine this morning in Newport Beach Ca.

I haven't seen this many Crabs since I was a kid.

These Red Crab (not sure of their real name) bring with them a warning.

When you see these Crab, it is a very strong indication of a El Niño year.

These Crabs need a lot warmer water than Newport's normal temps.

I'm not making a prediction....The Crabs are.

It's looking to be a monster, science tells us that... the crabs agree. About the only good thing that could come out of this El Nino is that it could be strong enough to push the Ridiculously Resilient Ridge off the coast of California and let some rain in.

It's happened before. It looks like a mass beaching.

But, They are still alive. Hopefully high tide will take them away.

Woohoo. El nino also will extend the swimming season in the ocean this year. Bring a lot more tuna north for fishing and make my plumeria & heliconia blossom.

Lots of good things about el nino too

I think if it brings moisture in any form it will be great.

If it comes all at once is what I worry about.

Are they edible?
I could see myself shoveling up baskets full if they are.

I thought the exact same thing, started looking up recipes and #. I mean, they kinda look like crawdads so im certain they'd be good eating.

well and that song from the Little Mermaid with the cook.
youtu.be...
Enjoy.

I predict calif will follow Texas and get flooded.

It will start with big thunderstorms this summer in the calif desert as the tropical storms and Hurricane form off the west coast of Mexico and come north hitting Calif and AZ

Its time to start building arks here in calif.

Yes, tasty but really small.

In a survival situation it would be red gold.

Problem is they may have died of red tide and may be toxic

Some good info.


What are these things, and why are they here?

The Pleuroncodes planipes, also known as pelagic red crabs or tuna crabs, are about 1 to 3 inches long, and typically live in Baja California. It’s not unprecedented for them to come up here, but other than a smaller number earlier this year on Balboa Island, it’s been decades since their last visit.

It’s too early to say what is causing this, but many other unusual creatures have turned up in Southern California over the past year, and climate scientists have pointed to warm water as a reason.

The unseasonable warm patch of ocean – extending from the Bering Sea to the waters off Southern California and showing up as a red splotch on temperature-indicating water maps – even has been given a nickname by the scientists: “The Blob.”

Can we eat them?

Not unless by “we” you’re including birds, sharks, yellowtail, tuna and blue whales. All those creatures love tuna crabs.

But they’re not great for human meals. They don’t have much meat in their shells..........

........Anthony Martinez, program manager for the county’s Environmental Health Department, said there are no human health concerns believed to be associated with the handling of dead tuna crabs.


Sounds like something common but rare and nothing dangerous about it.

Good info , But I have to say , I am an Alaskan Fisherman seasonally . I also fish in southern CA , I have notice a big change in the amount of Catch in Alaska since 2013 .

So bad that the company I worked for had to close down one of its floating processors.

Not sure if this has anything to do with it . But its common word around Alaska that change Is notable.

Something is going on with the weather or water .

I've seen some articles about colder water up here being the culprit the last few years. If the water is warmer one place it's colder another.

I don't know much about that however. Catch it, cook it, eat it is my only fishing experience. Hate the combat fishing though and I prefer trout fishing and walking streams when I was still able.

I suppose fish have been going through these changes since long before people set foot on land. Our experience is too short on this planet to even know the patterns.

Regarding the patterns , That is how we catch them
by patterns , the way they eat , the way they migrate , the depths they move to when the water temp changes etc.

The problem is that they are not reproducing fast enough for some strange reason or they have just gone .

I think it has to do with environment and climate. I would hate to speculate on over fishing but that could play a roll as well.

I'd imagine its a combination of things. I know who to hit up now for fishing facts


Overfishing must be high on the list of potential problems.

More on topic, that mass of red on the beaches must be quite a sight. Seems like they should find a use for them like pet food or something.

I can barely get myself to move some mornings, let alone keep track of the Blob.
