Product Summary

Crab - Spider

Crab - Spider

Not available for sale at this moment

Spider crab is gaining in popularity; with a finer, sweeter flesh than the more popular brown crab. We suggest having us cook your spider crab as they are not the hardiest of species and it will not reach you alive on most occasions.
Most Cornish fishermen fishing for crab and lobster will land spider crabs within their catch. We tend to favour spider crab landed on the North coast, as the crabs are larger.
Spider crabs are landed for most of the year with heavy catches in spring and late summer.

It is hard to beat a fresh crab sandwich made with chunky granary bread and home made mayonnaise! Presented whole spider crab makes any dinner table look divine. Some people prefer to serve only the legs and claws and discard the body.

Our fish is landed daily and comes in all different sizes - just as nature intended! Our prices are given in 'weight per kilo' and where possible we are able to offer a price per portion. We will do our best to get your order as close to the kilo weight as possible and always within a 20% variant to the size you choose.
