Responsibly Harvested Red King Crab Meat
At King Crab Legs Co, we know the long-term sustainability of seafood products is an issue deeply connected to coastal communities all across the world. In order to offer you king crab meat today and in the future, we work only with fisheries that follow all local, federal, and international rules and regulations to responsibly harvest king crab to ensure continued access to these crustaceans for future generations.
Unmatched Quality and Freshness
King Crab Legs Co. sources crabmeat to be the freshest, tastiest it can be for our customers. Prized by local fishermen, our Red King Crabs are caught in the frigid waters of the Bering Sea as well as off the coast of Norway. When it lands at the docks, it is immediately cooked, sometimes brined, and flash-frozen before it’s shipped directly to us. It’s impossible to experience fresher Alaskan king crab unless you take a boat out on the water and catch it yourself (which we don’t recommend).
As part of our commitment to sustainable seafood, King Crab Leg Co responsibly sources Red King Crabs from two distinct regions of the world. Traditionally, Red King Crab has been sourced from the Alaskan coast in the Bering Sea.
We also source Red King Crab from a growing, invasive population that migrated north of Norway. This helps Norway combat the threat and maintain a more viable ecosystem in their waterways while ensuring the beloved seafood is caught using traditional, sustainable methods.
