Shows the boats returning with live crab that is taken out of their tote/bushels and put back into a tote by hand and then kept in tanks for auction.

The species is Portunus trituberculatus

Question - anyone watching the video - if you look closely at the claws, they all appear misshappen.  Far too often to be natural.  Do you think the crabbers purposefully break the claws?

I'm guessing the processers require the claws be disabled.

The crabs that they unloaded from the boat definitely had the lower half of the pincers removed. I guess they do that because they dump them in a big pile when they sort them, otherwise they would have a huge ball of crabs holding on to each other! The crabs that they brought out of the freezer before they cut them up, had about 1/4 of both parts of the pincers cut off. I don't know how that worked, looks like they still could grab onto each other.
