FAQs about crab claws
Stone crab claws are more expensive than other types of claws because harvesting them is more labor-intensive. Due to sustainability measures, fishermen cannot take the whole crab. They must remove only the claws. In Florida, 98% of stone crabs are found, harvesting can only occur between October 15 and May 1. The claws must be at least 2 7/8-inch long for a fisherman to harvest them legally.
It is legal to remove one or both claws, provided that they're the right size. If the claw is removed correctly, the crab can grow it back within a year. It takes about three years for the claw to become large enough for harvesting again. Since the process of harvesting stone crab claws requires pulling the crabs in, measuring their claws, carefully removing them, and returning the crabs to the sea, this crab meat is costly.
Getting the meat from crab claws can be a time-consuming process, so you'll likely want to round out your meal with other dishes. Some tasty sides that pair well with crab claws are garlic mashed potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, fresh buttered corn on the cob, sweet potato fritters, and steamed vegetables.
Crab can be a healthy addition to your diet. This meat is high in protein and very low in fat. One cup of cooked crab has about 97 calories, 21 grams of protein, and less than 1 gram of fat. Crabmeat is also high in omega-3 fatty acids that help protect your eye health, promote brain health, and reduce your risk factors for heart disease. Crabmeat also contains selenium, an antioxidant that boosts your immune system. The B12 in crab supports your nerves and blood cells.
