Pay attention to the word "Sustainable."  You will be hearing that a lot in the future.

This is how it's going to go.  After I kick your A$$ i'm going to run you through the wood chipper and put you in containers in the freezer to use in my crab pots!  The really sad part?  You let an old man kick your A$$!!!

They will be on to something when they can "induce molting" on an 8 inch hard crab. What would that be about an 11 inch softie? I'd pay big money for one of them.

No, thats fine if you like eatting them really soft..We let them "firm" up before we take em out of the tanks...I see lots of wrinkles in the one in the picture, if we took em out that soft, they'd die before they got to market..They are really weak after they shed...We leave em in for about 3 hours after they shed,depending on the water temps.. But they won't reach there full length until they get Hard..And the slower they harden(cold water,low salinity,and low calcium) the bigger they get too..
