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.
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 waters of these subarctic seas are wild and unpredictable, making this crab an especially difficult, even dangerous catch.
Superb living conditions and a dazzling diversity of life have made way for the King Crab population to flourish and currently the Barents Sea boats some of the finest crab meat one could imagine.
This creates demand for the Red King Crab by fisherman and seafood lovers around the world.
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.
The tastiest of crab meat lies in its walking legs and claws which are offered to you in CRABIT’s boxes.
Praised by top chefs, restauranteurs and seafood lovers around the globe, the king’s meat is a true favorite of gourmet lovers.
Our brave fishermen and navigators have risked their lives to bring you the finest and largest Red King Crab available on our planet.
CRABIT is pleased to share this remarkable gift of nature with you.
Let us accompany you on this journey for a taste of this treasure to the most remote, forbidding areas, the northern seas.
