Crab and Crabmeat

Crabs are the core part of our business.
Live crabs are stored in our sea water holding tanks for the shortest period to ensure top quality for you and your customers.

Our crab processing factories cook and process live crabs in to fresh cooked crabs, vacuum packed pasteurised crabs, vacuum packed frozen crabs, crabmeats and dressed crabs.

The majority or our whole cooked crabs are female but we are able to process whole male crabs to order when available.

Brown crabmeat and White crabmeat
Normally sold per 500g/250g in our pasteurised form giving a shelf life of up to four weeks. This is a wonderful way of enjoying the goodness of fresh crabmeat, especially if you don't have the time to 'pick your own'. This product has been cooked and hand picked then placed in a bag and vacuum packed. A date label is then added and the product is pasteurised. No additives or preservatives, just the best natural flavor. Every care has been taken to remove all traces of shell, although some small pieces may remain.

Fresh whole cooked cock, hen
Sold per crab, priced per kilo, male crabs are more expensive larger claws, better meat yield in the spring, whereas hen crabs are fuller in the autumn. Unless otherwise requested, this product will be cooked for you before delivery. Should you require live crabs, please cook on day of delivery. Upon delivery, cooked crabs should be consumed within 2 days and stored at 0-8 degrees, unless frozen (please follow freezer manufacturers instructions).

Spider crabs
We started selling Spider Crabmeat only a few years ago; the demand is huge so to avoid dissapointment please place your order early! Spider crabs are too sharp and spiny to vacuum pack and we are currently looking at alternative packaging.

Fresh cooked vacuum packed pasteurised whole crabs
A cooked crab is wrapped in paper, a date label is added, the whole product is then put in a bag, vacuum packed and pasteurised. This seals in that fresh flavor for up to four weeks. No additives or preservatives, just natural flavor.
