Ok now ...... lets "play" fair ----- thats not a "Jimmy" Blue.

Is that a "Stone Crab" Huh? If so ...... ya should 'harvest' the claws and put him back in the water. Theres nothing good to eat on him except the claws and if returned to the water ---- he will grow the claws back for you to harvest another time.

Nice pic though!!

 It is what the Australians call a mud crab, this was caught off the coast over there.  They steam the whole thing and eat them. Wink

Here's a picture of a mud crab that I found on the Internet:

(http://www.gambaro.com.au/images/w_1.JPG)

Looks very much like our own blue crab, but look at them claws!

I found this description of its meat: Delicate sweet taste.  Medium to firm texture.

Hmmmm....

If you want to know what one of them taste like, just run to your local grocery store and pick some up.   I did and it wasn't for me.  Many resturantes here in MD uses it and most can't tell, and I feel it's because of all the other stuff (herbs and whatever else) mixed in to hide the taste of their crab cakes and what not.  They can keep that crab over there..  For me, I like the Blue crabs found in the USA!

Here's some info I pulled from the net about the mud crab (Scylla serrata).

The Giant mud crab (the real S. serrata, locally called the 'Sri Lanka Crab') seems to prefer more saline oceanic waters and has uniformly green or blue claws. This species can grow to 28 cm (that's 11.02 inches) in carapace width and weigh close to 3 kg (that would be 6.6 pounds to us in the U.S.).
