Bring the flavors and fun of the Maine coast to your home with an order of Jonah Crab Claws for your next family dinner or dinner party event. Our wild-caught Jonah crab claws are a perfect appetizer and are great for dipping in melted butter or cocktail sauce. These crab claws are pre-cooked right at the dock when they come ashore, and flash-frozen to seal in the freshest taste. When thawed, they’re ready to serve alongside your favorite side or drowned in melted butter. These Jonah crab claws come triple-scored for easy opening, but you may still want crab shell crackers on hand for an even easier dining experience.
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.
What’s the Serving Size for Jonah Crab Claws?
Our 2 lb. package of Jonah Crab Claws make for a memorable, delicious appetizer treat your dinner guests can enjoy, or as the main course for the family.

If you’re looking to add other delicious seafood appetizers to your menu, be sure to order one of our savory soups and chowders or some traditional Maine crab cakes. To round out your New England tasting experience, for dessert add a Maine-iac Chocolate Whoopie Pie or Maine Pie Co. Blueberry Pie to your order.
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.

In order to bring you a truly memorable seafood experience and keep our products as fresh as possible, all frozen items are shipped with gel packs or dry ice. Dry ice is not hazardous to food and will not contaminate it. In fact, these cooling methods, alongside our own nitrogen freezing process, help keep your seafood at ideal temperatures during shipping and ensure they taste just like they are fresh from the dock.
Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Jonah Crab
We’ll help you maintain Jonah crab meat at the highest quality possible.
- Keep frozen at or below 0℉.
- Thaw under refrigeration at or below 38℉.
- For quick thawing, place frozen package in cool water for 20 to 30 minutes until contents are flexible.

- Do not allow food to warm above 38℉ prior to cooking.
Serving Jonah Crab Claws Is Easy
Our Jonah Crab Claws are already fully cooked by professional fishermen as soon as they are landed at the dock. Once thawed, you can eat the crab meat cold. The crab claws are triple-scored for easy opening, but having crab shell crackers on hand can help to more easily extract the meat.
Heating Jonah crab is easy and fast. It is recommended to only heat the product until warmed through to your desired temperature. Overcooking Jonah crab meat may result in less flavorful meat and an undesired texture.

Susan StenbergVerified BuyerAbsolutely delicious!
I became a stone crab addict long ago and eventually found a very close cousin in Jonah crab. It does have a harder shell so you need a set of crackers. The extra effort is worth the wait. Sweet and delicious! I recommend googling the Stone Crab sauce they use at Joe’s Stone Crabs in Miami. Easy to make and goes really well. Jonah crab is a fraction of the price of Stone Crab and it’s also easier to eat. The shell isn’t as hard. Highly recommend!!
LouriezVerified BuyerVery good, but difficult to eat
