Snow Crab (Chionoecetes opilio) from Atlantic Canada
Snow crab thrives in the icy cold, pristine waters of Eastern Canada. With a hard shell encasing sweet, succulent meat, these snow crab are prized around the world.
Skilled fishers capture the crab in pots, harvesting only prime quality males that meet or exceed the minimum catch site. Females are returned to the water, ensuring a sustainable fishery.
As soon as the snow crab reaches the plant it is processed under exacting standards. To meet customer requirements, Atlantic Canadian Snow Crab is frozen by blast, in brine, or with CO2 or NO2. Atlantic Canada’s Snow Crab comes packaged in a wide selection of products and sizes, frozen and glazed for consistent top quality.
