Can someone kindly direct me to a source where I may learn more about various species of crabs around the world?

Case in point, whenver my wife and I travel to The Netherlands, we enjoy visiting the lovely and quaint town of Scheveningen on the North Sea (try pronouncing that like a native!). While there, we are sure to take a relaxing stroll and have a tasty seafood luncheon along the docks at the harbor.

Invariably, there are crabs to be seen cruising along in the waters. And they look, for all the world, like the Callinectes Sapides blue crabs of the Chesapeake Bay. Whenever we ask about the crabs, however,  the local natives shrug their shoulders and do not seem to know what to tell us. When we ask if they are edible, they just look at us as if we had two heads! We have never seen them in the seafood markets.

I am interested in knowing more about crabs around the world. Many thanks for your kind responses.

I can never find anything definitive on the web, but I've heard that Blue Crabs are making their way over to europe the same way zebra mussles made it over here, in ship ballast.

Thank you for the citations, Eastern Shore Gal.
Still trying to find the Atlantic Red Crab, and the northern Pacific King Crab and Dungeness Crab in the listings.
Surprised to see hardly a word about "importance as a food source". Mostly about taxonomy. it seems.

Crab doc I can pronounce Scheveningen  Grin .......... I speak Dutch, actually Flemish.... (dutch dialect) I was born in Belgium next door to the Netherlands....
This is an interesting topic, The Dungeness is the crab of choice where I lived in Canada..... nice but not as nice as the Blue Crab. daisy

 Shocked HOLY COW did you see the claw on the Mulataga King Crab from Australia, and they get to be up to 15kg =33lb

Hi Daisy Cup,
Nice note. Thank you.
If you have never been to Scheveningen, you must try to visit the quaint town next time you are in Holland. My wife grew up there.

Beachside resort on the strand at the North Sea, elegant Kuurhaus Hotel, casino, boardwalk.... And, you can almost stroll the short distance to Den Haag. Oh, and dont forget the crabs in the harbor (not on the menu however.) Cuisine is generally bland Dutch except for some OK Indonesian and Italian, of course.
Skip the parde vlees! Pickled herring looks good but I am leery of any raw seafood.

Some years ago we took the train to Bruge for a day trip. I remember having lunch at a sidewalk cafe and seeing these huge cooked crabs sitting out on the counter in the hot sun. Not good! Looked something like dungeness crabs.

Many years ago, I flew my plane from Martin State Airport in Baltimore to Cape May, N.J. to pick up some 4 to 5 pound New Jersey lobsters fora dinner party. Well, they had this huge lobster claw there. It weighed 7.6 pounds! (They said the whole lobster weighed more than 35 pounds!)

I took the claw home with me and actually cooked it. Had to crack it with a maul on the concrete garage floor. As you might have suspected, it was, indeed, tough! Fun though.

I, also, enjoy dungeness crabs. We can get them live here in the Baltimore area in season. Sausalito much better, of course.
