  • Traditional Chesapeake Bay Grading Scale:  Small (5”-5.5”), Medium (5.5”-6”), Large (6”-6.5”), X-Large (6.5”-7”), and Super (7” +)
  • Choose dozen, half-bushel or bushel quantities.  For a dozen, choose any size crab.  Half and Full bushels fit these 4 categories [We list the full bushel crab amounts here.  Just divide in half for the ½ bushel]:  Bay (Small & Medium, about 8 dozen crabs), Jimmy (Medium & Large, about 6 dozen crabs), Jumbo (Large & X-large, about 5 dozen crabs), Female (Small-Medium, Large, X-Large, about 8 dozen crabs). 
  • Blue Crabs taste salty-sweet and peppery hot with the JO Spice #2.
  • Find 3 major meat categories as you pick crabs:  Jumbo (pulled from back swimming legs), Lump (find in the two equal crab halves), Claw (pick from the claws and legs). 
  • Chefs use jumbo for chilled cocktails, lump for crab cakes and claw for Maryland Crab Soup.
  • Consider about 8-10 crabs per serving.  A 3 oz. serving of crab meat contains 17.2 grams protein.
  • The Chesapeake Bay is the largest estuary in the world. (Perfect conditions for the blue crab)
