Hey guys I was wondering if anyone has ever seen little black dots inside their crabs? I bought a dozen crabs today and steamed them. The first few crabs were fine, but then I found three or four of them with the black dots. These dots were in the meat and the mustard, and it wasn't seasoning. Just curious if anyone else has seen this.

Thanks for the info. I've never seen this before. At least it doesn't ruin the crabmeat.

It's a relatively common issue.

I noticed "fluke worms" on some crabs I caught recently and found the same info regarding the "pepper spot" disease after doing some research.

My brother had a place on the Honga and most of the crabs he catches has that.

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.
