Soft Shell Mangrove Crabs

  • 100% Frozen fresh
  • Non-GMO
  • Antibiotic-Free
  • Chemical-Free
  • No preservatives and additives

Mangrove crabs molt or shed their hard shell in order to grow. Soft shell crabs are produced by stocking hard shell crabs in individual plastic boxes until they molt and replace their shell. Upon molting, soft shell crabs are collected before the shell gets hard again.

Soft shell crabs are completely soft and edible; thus, all parts can be eaten including the shell and limbs. When fried, soft shell crabs are very savory that's why it has become a popular delicacy in the world.
