Seafare's Commitment to SustainabilityWe work with local fishermen to continue traditional fishing techniques that maintain stocks of the blue swimming crab (portunus pelagicus). Since 1973, our cannery required fishermen to harvest crabs with a carapace measurement of at least 10 cm. Crab fisheries in Indonesia and the Philippines are only now beginning to establish minimum size requirements, with a ‘recommended’ carapace minimum of 8 cm. To tell the difference you need only compare the size of our whole chunk grades -- Jumbo Lump and Claw crabmeat, with other canned or pasteurized crabmeat. With the awareness that the seas do not offer an endless supply of any seafood, we have held our production steady since the mid 1970s. All of our fishermen are shore-based, with none of the catch coming from large-scale factory processing ships. Both nets and traps are used to catch the blue swimming crab. Nets must have a 10 cm minimum mesh size, allowing undersized juveniles escape. Fishermen are trained to release smaller crabs from traps unharmed. As a result we have been able to maintain production levels for over 35 years.Ideal for recipes that call for flaked crab meat. Miller's Select Special Lump Crab Meat is the top choice for appetizers, party dips or a quick and healthy light meal. Shell free and ready to use. 100% wild blue crab, responsibly harvested from pristine waters by local fishermen. Handpicked and packed to assure the highest quality.
