Stone Crab

Eat Fresh and Sustainable Local Seafood

If you like seafood, then you’ll love Florida stone crab claws! Though their thick, hard shell requires a little work and bit of finesse to crack, the taste is well worth the effort. These locally caught crustaceans pair perfectly with cold beer or white wine! And the best part – stone crabs are a sustainable fishery! After the claws are removed, crabs are returned to the water alive and their claws regenerate after a few seasons. The fishery closes May 1, so be sure to get them before then or you’ll have to wait until mid-October when it reopens.
