Fishermen working from small boats harvest this unique and delicious seafood delicacy. With tender white meat, Norton Sound Red King Crab’s smaller size gives it a sweeter taste and less fibrous texture. And because it’s the only king crab to be harvested during the summer months, it is an exclusive offering. It’s even available live or fresh-cooked during the season in limited quantities.
Depending on ice conditions, independent resident fishermen begin catching Norton Sound Red King Crab in early July. They deliver their catch live in small quantities to our processor in Nome. We clean the crab and then cook and flash-freeze clusters of leg sections. We carefully pack ultra-high-quality Norton Sound Red King crab and ship it via FedEx to customers all over the country.
