As said by Richard Gorelik of the Baltimore Sun-

"The Smith Island Crabmeat Co-op is one of the only, if not only, places that packs meat from the whole crab into each tub.

So, you got your claw, backfin and a little but of lump all together, the makings of a perfect crabcake.

A little lump for texture, the rest [edit] for flavor."
