A Guide To Buying Cheap, Quality Alaska King Crab Legs

The mysteries of the deep, icy-cold waters of the Alaskan Bering Sea reveal the home of the Alaskan king crab. These are amazing creatures with long spiny legs and large powerful claws. They are highly acclaimed as one of Alaska’s prized catches.

Those of you that are already familiar with Alaskan king crab, don’t have to be told of the virtues of this incredible tasty entrée. Beneath the tough, outer exterior is some of the finest, tastiest white meat that is known the world over by people with discerning tastes. Crabs can be used in appetizers, soups, salads and a variety of entrees. It’s the perfect hearty meal served up hot, with butter sauce to family and friends.

Types of King Crabs

There are three types of commercially fished king crab species. Blue king crabs (P. platypus) are found in southeastern Alaska on to Japan. Most Blue king crabs are found in the St. Matthew Islands and Pribilof. Golden king crabs (Lithodes aequispinus) are found in British Columbia all the way to Japan. The largest abundance of these crabs are located in the Aleutian Islands.

The third type is the king of the crabs, known as the Red king crab, typically found in Alaska. These crabs are considered to be the best; cherished for their gigantic claws and legs which provide such luscious, tender white meat.


Crabs are brought on board and they are either processed immediately or taken to a nearby processing plant. There they are cleaned and cooked. They are immediately flash-frozen, preserving their high quality flavor and texture.
