Maryland Blue Crabs Caught Daily

"From our docks to your door overnight"

Did you know that the Chesapeake Bay wears the title as “The Largest Estuary of the World”?

Ideal conditions exist for those crawling and yes, swimming Blue Crabs. In fact, Bay professionals tally the number at 600 million for this entire crabbing season. Captain James paused in his bushel organizing and smiled with a truly robust grin and said, “This year’s Bay conditions give our Blues a perfect growing sanctuary. Fat crabs, lump meat, everything our fans like!” The perfect mix of saltwater and fresh, better known as brackish create salty-sweet meat within the crab’s armor. In fact, five rivers run into the Bay and the Virginia tidal water establishing a perfect home for our Beautiful Swimmers. The Susquehanna, Potomac, Rappahannock, York and James churn the waters into a habitat perfect for spawning and crab activities. Captain James warns us that winter and icy temperatures can change the game, but for now, let Fat Crab Season continue! Click here to read more at our blog.

Blue Crab Trading and the Art of Shipping Crabs

Recently we accepted the award “Best Blue Crabs 2017-2018.”  Our shipping methods use a Five-Step Technique that ensures live crabs have optimal conditions to arrive alive and steamed crabs deliver fresh. Summertime sizzles with outdoor cookouts and we wanted to share this process with you.  Our shipping guru, Captain Mike explains, “Each order receives the utmost care that our packers choose the heaviest crabs and the exact amount of gel packs and materials to accompany them. We want 100% customer satisfaction!”

Blue Crab Trading directs the crew for packing crabs and seafood.

Ensuring safe, undamaged products, especially steamed Blue Crabs requires an exact technique. Our packing team recently recorded a video to show you the procedure. We follow five important steps: 1) Choose a cooler & box that gives ample room for spice, mallets, crabs, ice packs, and packing paper. 2) Carefully load ice packs & nonfood items and separate them with an insulating bag. 3) Position crabs belly-up in a second insulating bag to maintain tender, moist meat & season with JO Spice #2. 4) Close the second insulating bag and position more ice packs and seal the cooler. 5) Insert the high-quality packing in a box for ready shipping. Each order from a dozen to a bushel receives a custom cooler to fit the order size and the packers check your customer notes to add extra spice or follow any other instructions that you type on your online order form.

We just like to WOW with our hefty, tender Steamed Blue Crabs!

Listen to the words from our Facebook friend Jeff from California.  “My order was for 2 doz. extra-large steamed crabs, delivered overnight to the San Francisco Bay Area. The crabs were absolutely fantastic! They arrived on time and were well packed, with very minimal shell breakage. They were good size and were nicely cooked and seasoned. (Some places overcook them and it ruins them.)

Great to have such a reliable source for my favorite food on earth!”  

Why do we take pride in our Blue Crab delivery service?  We love making people happy with a true-Blue Crab eating experience!
