I don't see a topic on these yet, but admittedly I haven't read thru all the Forum posts yet either. The NJ Dept. of Fish and Wildlife has a great full page article on these new invaders in this month's issue if any of you can get a copy.

5 mittens were caught in the Hudson River last year (that were REPORTED). 19 reports in all last year I believe, 15 males and 4 females.

Have any of our members had sightings or heard reports yet?

They are also known as Hairy Crab and are a favorite item in some Asian cuisines.

Happy "Spring" everyone!!!  I was talking to a fellow from the DEC the other day concerning possible new striped bass regulations in the Hudson and Marine district. The talk turned to crabbing in the Hudson. The reports he received last year all backed up what I myself was saying; that the crabs seemed to be larger but there was a sharp decline in numbers. He had no explanation for this. I mentioned that I had not seen any mitten crabs, so I doubted predation was a factor. I was shocked when he told me that he was out with a dredger from Raritan Bay to check data at the end of March and they pulled up a female mitten crab bearing eggs from lower NY Harbor. It'll be interesting to see what this season brings.

Stay warm and well until the Jimmies come home!!

In China they are considered a delicacy.  People will pay upwards of $10 usd per 500 grams.

 stupid  What Ronster said.  They are an invasive species with no natural predators here and could displace our own blue crabs.  I'd rather not see that happen!

Just put the word out that they're extremely delicious and command prices upwards of $50 for a tiny box (like 5-7 of them) in China and they'll disappear fairly quickly imho. If you happen to catch one, definitely eat it! They're amazing.

They are delicious.    Doesn't mean 1) it shouldn't be reported and 2) turned in when caught.    It's the responsible thing to do.
