King Crab Nutrition

These legs are huge, and one leg could easily fill a single person. 2 pounds of king crab will serve 2 to 3 people easily if you're serving with additional entrees. If you're having a crab feast or are serving a group of crab lovers, 10 pounds would be good for 6 to 7 people.

Storing and Thawing

King crab arrives in the form of frozen legs and claws. Frozen king crab can be kept in a freezer for several months due to it's protective glaze. To thaw king crab, place it in the refrigerator a day prior to cooking it. Left-over crab legs should be kept under refrigeration and used within a couple of days.

Size and Count

These crab legs and claws are massive. Our standard at Fisherman's Express is that each Captain's Reserve leg or claw weighs over 2/3 pounds or more. Many legs will weigh over one pound or more with some claws being bigger than your fist! The legs and claws are packaged in clear plastic bags to help make storing them in your freezer easier.

Our Captain's Reserve red king crab is some the biggest crab that is caught in the annual Bristol Bay king crab fishery. This is Alaska's main king crab fishery and produces the majority of Alaska's king crab. Bristol Bay's pure waters hold some of the largest king crab in the world. What use to be only what the captain kept for himself is now available to you as well...the largest of the king crab.

Fishing Seasons

Alaska's main commercial fishery for Bristol Bay red king crab starts in mid-October and generally last for several months. Crab boats now have individual quota amounts assigned to them and they can fish crab at a slower pace than in the past "derby-style" method.


When king crab caught it is cooked and blast frozen to capture its quality. This commercial level of processing allows king crab to be kept frozen for long periods of time, up to a year or more. Crab legs are glazed with an outer shell of frozen water to protect it from the elements.
