Crab Information

King Crab Leg Sizing

King Crab leg sizes are determined by the number of legs that make up 10 pounds. For instance, our Jumbo 12-14 legs means that 10 pounds would have between 12 and 14 legs (plus claws). Each size of crab comes in a variety of weight increments, so a little math is necessary (see the table below). Claws are included in each package of legs, but both the number and size differ with each package. There are both large and small claws, because the crab uses a giant killing claw and a small feeder claw in nature.
