If you are a resident of one of the many islands off the British Columbia Pacific coastline the odds are pretty good that you have a boat, a favorite spot where you lower your crab pots into the ocean and enjoy inspecting these after a few days waiting time.
You might argue this is a lot of fuss and bother until you visit your favorite fish market and realize the high price attached to this ocean delicacy.
If you catch and prepare your own crab entrees you understand the effort and the acquired skills needed to do the job right.
With the meticulous skill of a surgeon you slowly extract the pinkish meat from its protective covering and ensure that no shards of the shell have been left behind.
This would be one such skill I would enjoy developing but for the fact that I lack the patience and manual dexterity to perform such a labor intensive operation.
