Stewards of the Crab Resource
Alaska Bering Sea Crabbers is the trade association representing the harvesters of king, opilio (snow), and bairdi (Tanner) crab in the Bering Sea. We are actively involved in fisheries management, policy development, scientific research, and marketing. We consider ourselves stewards of the crab resource and are committed to ensuring the sustainability of our fishery for generations to come.

"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.
