snow crab

Snow crabs are also known as cobbler crabs and queen crabs. The snow crabs living in the Alaska waters are larger in size, long in length and full in flesh, and the color of the crab shells is relatively soft. As it is an imported variety, in addition to the fresh snow crabs, you can also see frozen crab legs and whole snow crabs cooked and frozen in the fishing area. The main edible parts of snow crabs are crab legs and shoulder meat, so it is suitable for making dishes such as clams and grilled dishes. By the way, there are some crabs on the market called Australian snow crabs. In fact, it is not a snow crab, but a collective name for several kinds of crystal crabs made in Australia (scientific name Chak Crab).

Chionoecetes is a genus of crabs that live in the northern Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

Other names for crabs in this genus include "queen crab" (in Canada) and "spider crab" – they are known by different names in different areas of the world.

Snow crab are caught as far north as the Arctic Ocean, from Newfoundland to Greenland and north of Norway in the Atlantic Ocean, and across the Pacific Ocean, including the Sea of Japan, the Bering Sea, the Gulf of Alaska, Norton Sound, and even as far south as California for Chionoecetes bairdi.

In 2019 the Norwegian Supreme Court ruled that the species is considered a sedentary species living on the seabed, and thus governed by the United Nations Law of the Sea.

Crabs are prepared and eaten as a dish in many different ways all over the world. The legs are usually served in clusters and are steamed, boiled, or grilled. Snow crab can also be used as an ingredient in other dishes such as snow crab macaroni and cheese.
