Responsibly Harvested Alaskan King Crab Meat

At Maine Lobster Now, we know the long-term sustainability of seafood products is an issue deeply connected to Maine and other coastal communities all across the world. In order to offer you Alaskan king crab meat today and in the future, we work only with fisheries that follow all local, federal, and international rules and regulations to responsibly harvest king crab to ensure continued access to these crustaceans for future generations.

Unmatched Quality and Freshness

Maine Lobster Now sources crabmeat to be the freshest, tastiest it can be for our customers. Prized by local fishermen, our Alaskan king crabs are caught in the frigid waters off Alaska and Norway. When it lands at the docks, it is immediately cooked, sometimes brined, and flash-frozen before it’s shipped directly to us. It’s impossible to experience fresher Alaskan king crab unless you take a boat out on the water and catch it yourself (which we don’t recommend).

Where Your Crab Comes From

As part of our commitment to sustainable seafood, Maine Lobster Now responsibly sources red king crabs from two distinct regions of the world. Traditionally, Alaskan red king crab has been sourced from, you guessed it, the Alaskan coast in the Bering Sea.

We also source Alaskan red king crab from a growing, invasive population that migrated north of Norway. This helps Norway combat the threat and maintain a more viable ecosystem in their waterways while ensuring the beloved seafood is caught using traditional, sustainable methods.

Unlike many of our competitors, we do not source our crabs from Russia, due to lax oversight and accountability of sustainable fishing practices in the region.

Serving Size

The Serving Size of 1 lb. Alaskan Red King Crab Claws

Ordering Alaskan king crab can be confusing since the weight includes both the hard exoskeleton and the meat inside, but we’ll help you sort out serving sizes. Crab yields about 50% meat to 50% shell with a standard portion size of 5 oz.

So 1 lb. of Alaskan king crab claws can go a long way. You can use it to make heaping crab rolls loaded with the sweet meat, or you can pair it with other classic Maine seafood side dishes, like corn on the cob or red potatoes. Crabmeat is a versatile and nutritious protein source that’s counted among the favorites of nearly all seafood lovers.

Nutritional Benefits

Nutritional Benefits of Alaskan King Crab Meat

Crabmeat is a high-protein meat source that comes packed with vitamins and minerals. Like other shellfish and seafood we sell, crab could be added to the growing list of “superfoods” health experts recommend. Crabmeat offers a whopping 16 grams of protein per 3 oz. serving.

Crabmeat also contains vitamins B12 and C, and the antioxidants zinc and selenium. Zinc helps support bone mass and immune function, while selenium aids in preventing cellular damage. And there’s more. Crabmeat is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower inflammation and can reduce the risk of heart disease.

Preparing Alaskan King Crab Is Easy

We’re here to help perfectly cook your Alaskan king crab, even if this is your first time ordering.

Alaskan king crab meat is already fully cooked by professional fishermen as soon as it’s landed at the dock. Once thawed, you can eat the crab meat cold straight out of the shell.

You can also steam, grill, or bake Alaskan king crab to eat it warm or use the meat in classic seafood recipes instead of using lobster or fish.
