Wow, a partially albino crab landed out of Suicide Bridge Restaurant! ...

I've never seen a partially albino crab......now I have. One of our crabbers landed this oddity this afternoon.

what sets Maryland crabs apart from the same species (Callinectes sapidus) caught further south is the fact that our crabs have to hibernate during the winter. Crabs in the Chesapeake will build up fat reserves during the next few months to prepare to bury themselves for a long winter.

These fat reserves give our crab meat that sweet flavor that we all love. As the air temperature begins to cool in the late summer and early fall, crabs will start to feed heavily. We should start to see some of the best crab meat of the year coming out of our picking houses very soon!
