Stone Crab Claws

Fishermen harvest stone crab claws legally if they are of the appropriate size, but using them in other ways is better for the animals and the environment. A harvester can pull off the larger claw and return the crab to the sea, but it is illegal to take live Stone Crabs. Instead, the fishermen collect the claws only. The crabs are then returned to the wild, where they can grow their claws again. The unique taste and texture of these crabs will make for a truly unique dining experience.

Stone crabs grow their claws back after several molts. For an adult stone crab, this process takes about a year. However, younger stone crabs can regenerate claws in less than three months. This process is largely dependent on the diet, but it can be rewarding to the crabs themselves. The claws will grow back in a few weeks to a year if they are fed a diet rich in freshwater fish.

Stone crab claws can be bought frozen or cooked, but it is essential to cook them right away, because freezing them can cause the meat to stick to the shell. Cooked stone crab claws, however, can be stored for a long time without losing their flavor. If you have ever had stone crab claws, you know how delicious they can be! Listed below are some tips for cooking stone crab claws. You should also know how to determine if they’re cooked perfectly.
