Benefits and Nutrition
Alaska snow crab is a source of lean protein, with one 3-ounce portion providing 20 g of complete protein and a whopping 405 mg of marine omega-3 fatty acids. One serving also provides the daily value of vitamins D and B-12.
Like all fisheries in Alaska, maintaining crab stocks and protecting the ecosystems where they live is the highest priority for fishery managers. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council works with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and NOAA to review the assessment surveys conducted by federal fisheries scientists to assess crab populations and then sets sustainable harvest limits each year. The snow crab fishery is also independently certified by the Responsible Fishery Management program.Learn More
