Fresh and Canned Crab Fresh Crab

Once considered bait-robbing pests by lobster fishermen Atlantic rock and Jonah crab are now a valuable bycatch of the lobster fishery, and also have their own small, directed commercial fisheries in the U.S. and Canada. Atlantic rock crab and Jonah crab are two common crabs found on the East Coast from Labrador to South Carolina, frequently found co-habiting with American lobster. Rock crab, or Peekytoe, the smaller of the two species, is caught mainly in the summer by inshore fishermen, while Jonah is caught year-round by inshore and offshore lobster boats. In the U.S., the Atlantic rock and Jonah crab fishery is managed as a mixed fishery. Both are considered good substitutes for West Coast Dungeness crab or stone crab.

8 oz. package of Peekytoe Crab -- Fresh - Never Pasturized, Never Frozen, All Natural. A specific type of Atlantic rock crab, Peekytoes are caught in waters 20- to 40-feet deep, in traps baited with bits of fish. The meat is pink with a sweet, delicate flavor and a favorite with chefs.

1 lb Jonah Crab -- Fresh - Never Pasteurized, Never Frozen, All Natural - Often called the "Atlantic Dungeness" crab, Jonah crabs are oval-shaped like Dungeness crabs, but with bigger claws. Jonahs are landed year-round by inshore and offshore lobster boats. They range from Nova Scotia to northern Florida but are most abundant from Georges Bank to North Carolina. Jonah meat is more uniformly white with a less sweet taste than the Peekytoe

Meribelle Crab -- Select grade 1 crab, the very highest quality for canned crab. Super Lump $39.99 /lb - Only the largest pieces of white meat, whole crab - no claw, no backfin, no small pieces. Stunning served on it's own or as a topping. When only the best will do this delivers every single time. Crazy sweet and delicate. This is why crab is awesome.

Jumbo - White whole pieces, delicate flavor - suitable as an ingredient and a topping, served on it's own. Special $29.99 - Same top quality as our Super Lump - just smaller, pure white lump crab (small whole pieces, stronger flavor - suitable as an ingredient).

Alaskan King Crab Legs -- These are the big boys - you can buy the small Alaskan King crab legs that contain a thin pencil of crab anywhere in town - but my crab legs are the huge ones. Thick, sweet crab - just warm and serve. We suggest steaming them for a few minutes. Crab legs are graded by the number per 10 lbs - our legs are 6-8 legs per 10 lbs which are the largest size. More meat per lb, good value for the money.

Commitment to Sustainability Cheese and Crackers is committed to the sustainability of our oceans and waterways. In support of that commitment we only purchase fish certified by sustainable by one or more third-party independent certification organizations, including but not limited to the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Seafood Watch and more. Our oceans are not capable of support the global demand for seafood. We support only wild fisheries that are managed in a long term sustainable model such as the Alaskan State Fishery, managed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, which oversees the industry. Farmed (Aquacultured) Fish at Cheese & Crackers In addition to support wild fisheries, we also support sustainable, environmentally sound and healthy farmed and ranch fish. While the majority of farmed and ranched fish are produced under conditions that are not acceptable to us at Cheese & Crackers (such as the entire Chilean Salmon industry), there are today organizations that do an exemplary job of farming and ranching fish under great conditions. Veta La Palma and are two of the finest organizations producing seafood commercially today. For more information of excellent, sustainable and healthy aquaculture please see: • Clean Fish • Veta La Palma web site • • Dan Barber: How I fell in love with a fish, TED Talk, February 2010 • Abend, Lisa (June 15, 2009). "Sustainable Aquaculture: Net Profits". Time Magazine. Retrieved January 11, 2013. • • • What is Sushi Grade? What is Sashimi Grade Fish? Is all Sushi and Sashimi Grade fish frozen? 1. Cheese & Crackers sells only fresh, never frozen fish for Sushi. The FDA guidelines for the consumption of raw seafood allow for seafood known to be relatively parasite free (such as Northern Bluefin Tuna) and fish raised under aquaculture conditions in such as a manner as to be independently certified as relatively parasite free are exempt from the requirement to freeze fish prior to consumption raw. Cheese & Crackers sells the finest sushi grade on the market today, always fresh, never frozen. 2. The terms “Sushi Grade” and “Sashimi Grade” have no definition in the United States and are freely used by commercial seafood producers, wholesalers and retailers. Every organization is free to label any seafood as “Sushi Grade” or “Sashimi Grade”. You should not purchase seafood based upon those words without knowing why the retailer has labeled the fish in that manner. Cheese & Crackers, Inc. uses the phrase, “Sushi Grade” on any fish that meets the following criteria: a. The fish was harvested within 48 hours (most within 24 hours). b. The fish has never been frozen. c. The fish is either not known to generally carry parasites OR raised in a manner which is certified by an independent organization to be generally free of parasites. d. Meets or exceeds Cheese & Crackers, Inc. mandatory standards for the label “Sushi Grade” which include: • Highest quality condition (we pay special attention to the condition of the whole fish, the head/eyes and flesh), and we exclude any fish not meeting our conditions for overall quality. • Highest quality natural coloration (a good indicator of the quality of the individual fish). • No off odor (no fishy smell). All fish sold at Cheese & Crackers must have a clean and pleasant odor of nothing other than fresh ocean.
