Live Crab Disclaimer
We do our very best to fill live orders with the liveliest crabs available. Normal mortality rates can be in excess of 15% of the entire order. When shipping a live seafood product dead loss is expected and Blue Crab Trading Co. cannot be liable for any amount of crab mortality, not limited to but including circumstances that are out of our control, such as; shipping environment due to extreme weather, rough handling, or delayed delivery by the shipper. If you insist on every crab being edible, we strongly recommend ordering your crabs steamed prior to shipment. However, if you insist on live crabs, please note that we provide no guarantees on the number of crabs that will arrive to your doorstep alive. Their condition upon arrival is not guaranteed. Blue Crab Trading Co. cannot refund any monies for dead loss in live shipments.
Blue Crab Trading Co. reccomends that customers excercise caution ordering live crabs in extreme cold and warm temperatures, as crabs do not live as well at these temperatures. Additionally in areas where shipping conditions fall below 32 degrees crabs can freeze and cause mortality.
