Fish Crab Meat
Any of a large variety of CRUSTACEANS (animals with a shell) with 10 legs, the front two of which have pincers. Crabs are noted for their sweet, succulent meat and are the second most popular SHELLFISH (after shrimp) in the United States. There are fresh- and saltwater crabs, the latter being the most plentiful. The major catch on the Pacific coast is DUNGENESS CRAB, from the North Pacific come the KING CRAB and snow crab, along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts it's BLUE CRAB and Florida waters give us the STONE CRAB.
