Hi Gear Seafood got its start back in 1984 when Tim and Margaret Webster bought their first crab boat, Edgy, and got to work hauling crabs from the chilly depths off southern Vancouver Island.
Flipping forward almost three and a half decades we find them still engaged in the crab industry although no longer actively fishing. At a certain point and with aches and pains of getting older and doing physical work creeping up, it dawned on Tim that there had to be an easier way to secure a supply of crab. Indeed there was, and HGS has since evolved into a business that buys crab directly from the commercial crabbing fleet in BC and passes them on to an ever expanding customer base.
Use the link below to find our book on Amazon. "About Crabs" is a guide to both crabbing and life itself. Who knows, you might even come away with a degree from our university, "F.U." ak Fisheries University. At a mere $8.99 per copy it will come in handy for propping up that wobbly table you have if nothing else.
