SERVING SIZE. Each 2 lb quantity contains approximately 2 clusters and serves 2-3. A standard serving size for crab is 1 lb per person, or .5 lb per person if serving as surf and turf.
Alaska has a variety of comprehensive management methods in place for crab that are not widely practiced in the rest of the world. With every aspect of its crab fisheries strictly regulated, closely monitored and rigidly enforced for nearly four decades, Alaska’s successful management practices are considered a model of sustainability for the entire world.
The guiding principle of the management of Alaska’s crab fisheries is solidly based in science and managers must take a precautionary conservative approach rather than risk damage to the resource. Scientists survey the crab stocks as well as the climatic, environmental and socio-economic factors that affect the fisheries. Within each fishery different entities are responsible for scientific research, regulatory enforcement, and policy/allocation. The sustainability of Alaska crab fisheries is independently certified by both the Alaska Responsible Fisheries Management program and the Marine Stewardship Council.
