SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Thousands of red tuna crabs washed ashore Tuesday morning in Mission Beach. 

Visitors in the area around the South Shores Park Boat Launch found beaches covered with the carbs. Red tuna crasbs are typically found off the coast of Baja California, however, El Nino weather patterns have pushed them north and onto Southern Californian beaches.
