Well the place I get my crabs is called Seaside Seafood.  It's near BWI airport.  They are getting their crabs from Louisanna right now and yesterday when I was there they had crabs for $20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70 bucks a dozen.

I didn't want the small ones and I couldn't afford the big ones so I went home with none.

Hopefully the prices will come down when the Maryland blues start running.

we sell to a picking plant in texas owned by a maryland dealer and our price went down yesterday. #1 males we get 1.40 a pound and everything else is .75 a pound. it costs .30 a pound on the airplane so u do the math.

So how do I convert that to a price by the dozen.  Or more precisely how much, on the average, does each size (#1, #2, #3) weigh each?  I've heard about one half pound for a decent size crab.

We get our crabs from Atlantic Seafood down here in Montgomery County and we pay about $70 for a half bushel of male and female mixed sizes mostly mediums.  They said they have the md crabs in now.  But when we got them last they were not very heavy, but it was still good eatin'  Smiley

Well I deal mostly with Seaside and they've been really honest with me.  They'll tell me when the crabs are light and then I skip them.  I prefer to skip the crabs until they are running fat.  I find it hard to believe that many crabs are being taken in Md.  But then again who knows?

You have to get a good relationship with any small operation food place....be it restaurant...seafood...or even pizza.  You treat them right and they'll do the same.
