Raw dark crab detail.png

A raw dark crab is a members-only fish found in the Wilderness. Dark crabs require a Fishing level of at least 85 and give 130 Fishing experience per catch. A lobster pot is used to catch dark crabs, along with dark fishing bait. Dark fishing bait can be obtained as a drop from various monsters in the Wilderness or bought from other players at the Grand Exchange.

They require a Cooking level of at least 90 to cook and give 215 Cooking experience per fish. It is advised to cook raw dark crabs at the Hosidius Kitchen due to their high burn rate, as they are still possible to burn even at 99 Cooking. Alternatively, wearing a Cooking cape will ensure 100% cook-success rate due to its perk.

Completion of the Elite Wilderness Diary will reward the player with a higher success rate when trying to catch raw dark crabs. For example, at level 99, the chance to catch a dark crab increases from 12% to 34%.[1]
