Alaska Tanner Crab (Bairdi Crab)
Our sustainably sourced Alaskan Tanner crab, commonly known as Bairdi crab, is prized for its delicately sweet, snowy white meat. This 2lb. package contains pre-cooked legs & claws that are ready to be thawed and eaten.
Tanner crabs (Chionoecetes bairdi and C. opilio) are brachyuran (meaning short-tailed) or true crab and constitute some of the most highly specialized of all crustaceans. The body is composed mainly of a chitinous shell or carapace with a small abdominal flap. Males of commercial size usually range from 7 to 11 years of age and vary in weight from 1 to 4 pounds.
