A Seafood Buffet that Knows its Crabs
No one knows crabs better than our seafood restaurant. We prepare them in a variety of different ways, each one sure to amaze your taste buds. Some interesting facts about the delicious snow crabs we serve include:
The habitat of the snow crab includes the Bering Sea, the Sea of Japan, the Chuckchi, Beaufort and Bering Seas and Arctic Ocean at depths less than about 650 feet and on silt and mud habitats.
In 2005, the Discovery Channel premiered “The Deadliest Catch,” a documentary/reality show that revolves around snow crab harvesting. True to the show’s title, the series reveals how truly hazardous life can be for those who venture into Alaska’s Bering Sea to catch this wildly popular crab.
In 2010, almost 22,000 tons of snow crabs were harvested in U.S. fisheries in the Bering Sea. U.S.-caught snow crab makes up about a third of the snow crab for sale in the United States.
- Male snow crabs can live up to 20 years.
- The male snow crab is much larger than the female with a leg span of around 35 inches versus the female’s 15.
- A female can produce 1,200 to 160,000 eggs, depending on her size.
- To grow, crabs must shed their shells to produce a new one. This process is called molting. A crab does this around 15 to 20 times during its lifetime.
