Crab

 

Seattle Shrimp & Seafood sources King and Dungeness Crab from the icy waters of the North Pacific and the Pacific Coast. Our Snow Crab comes from Eastern Canada and Alaska, and we source Santolla Red Crab (also known as Southern Red King Crab) from Argentina. We sell King Crab and Santolla Red Crab under our Ocean Gift® brand; our Dungeness and Snow Crab is sold in packer brands. We can also customize many of our crab products to your private label specifications and markets. All four species are available year-round, frozen in a variety of product forms.

Santolla Red Crab

Santolla Red Crab is known for its delicate flavor and rich meat texture. The Southern Hemisphere’s low-cost equivalent to the Alaskan King Crab, Santolla Red Crab also boasts a snowy white meat with a beautiful scarlet red membrane. This wild-caught, all-natural product is harvested, cooked and frozen at sea in Argentina.

 

A thriving fishery that continues to grow, Santolla Red Crab is fully traceable and easy to import into the US. Active and ongoing management ensures that only officially licensed boats with permits can harvest. 

 

Leg & Claw Pack – IQF legs and claws are full of meat, providing an excellent yield. Pack is similar to standard King Crab leg and claw specifications (see product forms below).

 

Picked Combo Meat – Our crabmeat product comes from the same, wild, frozen-at-sea raw material as the leg and claw above. Product is re-processed in China under the inspection and testing of technicians from our partner company Hanwa. No additional water or chemicals are added. To further ensure the highest quality, each block of crabmeat is glazed after freezing and then vac-packed for “double protection.”
