OMG, the prices of crabs in the MD area are SO high. like $320-350 for a bushel of 1;s, or $125, for a DZ and like $250 for a bushel of 2's ..  All I want to know from the commercial crabber out there, are you getting higher prices for your catch now? or are the retailers, just jacking up the prices.  If the crabbers are getting the more than I am fine, I am just wondering....I totally understand your work is very hard, and you deserve every penny you get, just wondering???

Thank you

Dealers and retailers are making the money. I only sell to the public for that reason. I beat those prices big time and best quality is straight from the man who caught them. Crab house breaks up our #1s into many sizes and quality.

Got that right.  They buy 1's and 2's yet sell 5 different sizes.  Yet on the other hand would you want to separate your catch into 5 different sizes?  Working by myself I had enough trouble sorting 1's, 2's, skinny and shorts. laugh laugh
