Mud Crab whole

Description:

Mud crabs are large crabs with a smooth, broad carapace. They have 9 even sized teeth on each side of their eyes.
Their two hind legs are flattened for swimming. In the most common form, the colour varies from very dark brown to mottled green.
The other, generally smaller form has a deeper body and is reddish brown. Mudcrabs inhabit sheltered estuaries, the tidal reaches of some rivers,mud flats and mangrove forests, although females carrying eggs are present in deeper waters up to 50 kilometres offshore.
These crabs favour a soft, muddy bottom, often below low tide level.

Meat Quality: 

Mud Crab yield about 25% meat, largely from the front claws, sweet flesh that has a slightly stronger flavour and firmer texture than that of other Crabs.
