Large estuary velvet crab
Between 5 to 6 pieces per kilo. The Galician velvet crab is caught in our estuaries, generally with fishing creel. Its exquisite meat and unmistakable flavour make it a firm favourite of many. It’s available on our markets from July to December only, as it’s closed season for the first 6 months of the year.
Variable in size, they can occasionally weigh more than 250 g. The bigger the crab, the higher the value.
We can deliver them either cooked or alive. Keep in mind that when cooking their live weight decreases by around 15–20%.
