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).
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.
How Many Servings in 1 lb. of King Crab Broiler Claws?
Your order of 1 lb. King Crab Broiler Claws will come cap-off and ready to eat once thawed. Due to the size variations of the crabs, 1 lb. can include anywhere from 7-9 cocktail claws to be served at dinner or an event.
When you need a special appetizer for a special occasion, our King Crab Broiler Claws are certain to impress your guests. They make exceptional cocktail hour hors d’oeuvres and will excite the taste buds of anybody getting ready to sit down for the main course. Or choose them as a dish for a tapas-style dinner with Applewood-Smoke Bacon-Wrapped Scallops, corn on the cob, crab cakes, and more small dishes we offer. To top it off, add a sweet blueberry pie dessert from Maine Pie Company.
Nutritional Benefits of King Crab Claw 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.

Serving King Crab Broiler Claws Is Easy
King Crab Broiler Claws are already fully cooked by professional fishermen as soon as they are landed at the dock. Once thawed, you can eat the crabmeat cold.
Heating king crab is easy and fast. It is recommended to only heat the product until warmed through to your desired temperature. Overcooking king crab meat may result in less flavorful meat and an undesired texture.
