Crab Recipes

"The crab harvesters are small, family-owned businesses that care deeply about the sustainability of the crab resource which supports their livelihoods and brings delicious, healthy crab to your plate."

MEET THE CRAB

Each season our harvesters fish for a different crab species.  Red king crab is harvested in October and November while opilio (snow) and bairdi (Tanner) crab are generally harvested January through March.
