Has/have any of ya guys heard of eating the sponge part on the crab (when it's orange)Just curious because I think someone (customer) was asking if we had any. I believe it was lost in the translation the differrence between the roe(inside) and the egg sac. For the life of me I can't see the sac in a recipe. I know you use the roe for she-crab soup etc.

I always thought it was illegal to keep a sponge crab. Never heard of anyone wanting to eat the sponge.

Well it's legal to keep them here, and you can ship them to picking houses in Va and Md. I thought it was strange too, but the person is oriental and really hard to understand. My bossman and I both think there is a communication barrier. The person wants us to freeze them in 1lb bags. I know they mean the roe inside of the crab. Usually the roe is separated during the picking process. I thought I would try to get some feedback on here. They make she-crab soup with the roe not the sponge unless you guys have found a new method. My son is the only one in the family(well father inlaw too) that eats the roe.

No not really, they used to put it 1lb cups like what crab meats comes in. It's probably enough for a good batch of she-crab soup. I'm sure they use for sushi as well.

Illegal to keep a sponge crab in CT and FL as well!

In the Daytona area of Florida there is a big calling for steamed female crabs due to the possibilty of roe!
They really like the roe there and seem to prefer female crabs over male crabs!

Never heard of anyone wanting a sponge crab though.

It turned out to be and as I stated before a lack of communication English and Chinese. I think asked youknow crab egg you have??? me take egg and makes soop. you pack for me in 1lb bag crab eggs. Bossman thought he meant taking the orange sack off is what he wanted. Luckily boss only killed about a trillion babies and their mothers Angry Angry Angry Angry I betcha he doesn't do that again. Having this big blossom of a sack floating in my soup is a little un kosher.
