Cornish crab

Cornish crab

For hundreds of years fishermen from almost every fishing port or cove in Cornwall have harvested crab from the crystal clear waters that surround the Cornish coast. These crabs are considered to be amongst the finest available in the UK.

Where to buy crab from a sustainable source?

We make sure our customers buy crabs that are sustainably caught, hand sorted and graded for the best quality. It is our commitment to landing only larger crabs that has guaranteed the future of our fishery.

Cornwall has protected its crab stock by having a minimum landing size in excess of 500g, while other areas of the country have smaller minimum landing sizes, almost half Cornwall's. Any small crabs and those that won't make the grade are returned to the sea; this way there is no waste or discards.


Where are your crabs landed?
Our fishermen work the fishing grounds between Lizard Point (south of Falmouth) and Start Point of Plymouth. These grounds produce, without a doubt, the finest crab; full of meat and flavour.
How fresh is the crab?
Fresh Cornish crab is landed daily, this with our sea water holding tanks, allows us to have really fresh cooked crab available on demand for delivery next day nationwide.
How can I buy crab?
Our fresh crab is available cooked, dressed, as hand-picked white or brown meat, or just cooked claws
