Our Red King Crab is caught in the cold, open waters of the Northern part of the Arctic Ocean, by the North West Fishing Consortium, who’ve been harvesting Red King Crab since 1993.
The crab are caught in wire pots, baited with cod and other fish, and hauled up on deck by the crab catching crews, where they are cooked straight away.
Fishing is done in accordance with the Common Fisheries Policy, all vessels are approved by EU authorities, and the crews obey strict food safety management standards.
Every crab is certified GMO and chemical dye free.
To maintain stocks, harvesting takes place between September and December, and never during breeding and molting season. The boats stay away from coastal areas, where the female and young crab are, so they only catch the adult males.
Research scientists regularly report the number of crab in the sea to the Federal Agency for Fisheries, who strictly regulate the volume of each catch.
