Our Crab Sizes Explained...


Always Males

5 1/2" and UP

#1's are sorted into a range of sizes:

  • 5 1/2" to 6"  We call these LARGE

  • 6" to 7"  We call these EXTRA LARGE

  • 7" to 8"  We call these JUMBOS

  • 8" and UP  We call these MONSTERS


Always Males

5" to 5 1/2"

We call these #2's because they are all the same size and do not need to be sorted.


Always Females

We call these Females.  Females are always 5" to 6" and we do not size them.



These are crabs that were caught with no claws or are extremely light or barely 5".  They end up at the picking house for crab meat.
