Responsibly Harvested Jonah 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 Jonah 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 Jonah crab to ensure continued access to these crustaceans for future generations.
Unmatched Quality and Freshness
Crabmeat offered at Maine Lobster Now is the freshest, tastiest it can be for our customers. Jonah crab is caught in the cold waters of the North Atlantic and immediately cooked when docked. Our Jonah crab claws and leg meat are then flash-frozen to seal in freshness before it’s shipped to us. You won’t find Jonah crab meat that is more fresh unless you drive a boat out into the ocean and catch it yourself (which we don’t recommend).
Maine Lobster Now takes great pride in responsibly sourcing Jonah crab meat to help maintain crab populations for generations to come. Jonah crab has been sustainably harvested in Maine for generations, but rapidly warming waters have moved much of the population into colder waters just north of our shores. Today, we responsibly source Jonah Crab in the waters of Nova Scotia and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, though we also work with local fisheries in Maine whenever possible.

Jonah crab meat is also a popular choice for making your own crab cakes at home, mixing it into other popular recipes like mac & cheese, or serving with traditional New England side dishes like red potatoes or corn on the cob. If after all that you still have room for dessert, bring more Maine flavors home with a Labadie's Bakery Orginal Maine Whoopie Pie or Maine Pie Co. Blueberry Pie.
Nutritional Benefits of Jonah 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.
