CRABIT was formed by adventure-seeking seafood enthusiasts in pursuit of ultimate gourmet treat nature has to offer.
Their search was rewarded with a delicacy unmatched in its flavor, size and nutritive value: the Red King Crab.
The Red King Crab meat is valued for its tender texture and delicate sweet flavor. Rich in taste and protein while at the same time very low in saturated fat and calories, it is also a good source of vitamin C, B12, folate, magnesium and phosphorus.
The moist Crab meat with a scarlet membrane is snow white in color. Praised by top chefs, restauranteurs and seafood lovers around the globe, the king's meat is a true favorite of gourmet lovers.
Our wild caught Red King Crab comes from the depths of the Barents sea. Once known by Vikings and medieval Russians as the Sea of Murmans, these legendary waters now carry their name after a 16th century Dutchman who sought a northeast passage to Asia – Mr Willem Barents.
Glacial depths reaching 600 meters (1968 ft) are now home to one of the rarest and most delicious of all sea creatures - the mighty Red King Crab.
The waters of these subarctic seas are wild and unpredictable, making this crab an especially difficult, even dangerous catch. This creates demand for the Red King Crab by fisherman and seafood lovers around the world.
