About CrabPlace.com crabs—In 1989, the Maryland Blue Crab (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun) was designated the State Crustacean. Its name honors Mary Jane Rathbun, the scientist who described the species in 1896. The blue crab's scientific name translates as "beautiful swimmer that is savory."
Blue crab meat is sometimes compared to lobster meat, the flavor best appreciated by cracking and eating steamed hardshells. Crabs are prepared in restaurants and in home kitchens, steamed or sauteed, as Maryland crab cakes and Crab Imperial, or in crab soup and crab dip.

I am a Maryland native who now lives in Tampa. I miss my crabs especially from the Eastern shore. Now I can count on getting my crabs from The Crab Place a very reliable source and at the best price. Everything is shipped perfectly, packed really well. The crabs I ordered were colossal and heavy males. I found my crab fix for sure!
