Snow crab meat is sweet and flaky your chef only needs to reheat it gently before serving. Your diners may enjoy snow crab directly out of the shell with melted butter or as a delectable addition to chowders, omelets, crepes, casseroles and quiches. It also makes an excellent appetizer served cold. Add charm to your menu with succulent snow crab dishes.

Under excellent management

As one of Alaska’s signature fisheries, the snow crab has had its share of successes and hardships. Luckily, effective management has responded to these oscillations quickly and successfully. Population assessments are conducted every year with the results used to set the catch limit for the following season. Even if the population fluctuates due to ocean conditions rather than overfishing, fishermen are able to respond effectively and take fewer crabs. This creates a sustainable model that allows the fishery to continue thriving year after year. The fishery is also under an individual fishing quota (IFQ), which means each and every fisherman receives a fair share of the harvest – immensely decreasing competition between fishermen and pressure on the snow crab population.
