Crab Supply Update

By Jeff

This week many seasonal crab carryout businesses open up for the summer season. This creates an uptick in the demand for crabs and usually a spike in the wholesale cost of crabs. Yea, not good right?

The somewhat milder winter is bringing an early season for North Carolina. We will be getting our first NC crab this weekend. Usually at the beginning of the season, anything and everything goes into the #1 basket from sm to big crab, so we will doing some serious sorting for proper sizing.

My Virginia crabber has already contacted me, their season opens up Mar 15th I believe, and he expects to have crab available for me shortly after that. These will be the first Chesapeake Bay Crabs of the season!

The Maryland season opens up on April 1. Hopefully we have plenty sunny days and warm temps to give us an early start there too! Lets hope that the milder winter was gentle to the crab stock in the bay and gives us a plentiful season!

Thanks for reading!
