Crab (Cnacer pagurus)

We are really proud of the provenance and quality of our Cornish Crab. We have close relationships with a small number of fishermen and they land directly to us. Not only that we provide them with bait for their pots in the form of our fish frames and waste. This is a real win win as it eliminates the need for us to dispose of our waste and provides our fishermen with free bait.

Cornwall crab really is stunning, and very often the boats that land lobster and spider crab also land brown crab to us.

Crabs are caught in different pots to lobsters, but the process is a similarly ecologically friendly way to catch seafood. They do very little damage to the seabed and they are very targeted in what they aim to catch with minimal by-catch. The fishermen are also very responsible in ensuring any undersized fish are returned to the sea alive.
