The Species

Snow crab is a crustacean transformed in the Atlantic provinces and in Quebec. Snow crabs have five pairs of long, flattened legs, the first of which has a large claw. The crustacean’s body is almost circular. Male snow crabs reach a circumference much larger than that of female snow crabs. Crab meat is rich, sweet and firm. It is pink-orange on the inside and white on the outside and is composed of fine and tender strands with a delicate and exquisite taste.
