Description

Order Whole cooked/boiled Frozen Opilio crab.

Opilio crabs are native to the Pacific Ocean and have been known to live in saltwater environments since the Jurassic period.

These crabs are not only great at eating algae, they are also able to eat plastic! When these crabs find plastic debris, they use their claws to scrape off the plastic and then consume it. This is how they get their name, “opilio” means “scrape” in Spanish.


The Opilio crab was first discovered in the Philippines and is now considered endangered due to overfishing. However, scientists believe that if we can help them adapt to living in land-based habitats, they could become a valuable resource for coastal communities.


They are omnivorous and will eat anything they find. Their diet consists mainly of algae, mollusks, small crustaceans, and insects. They are often found in coastal waters and estuaries.


The female snow crab lays her eggs in the springtime. She carries them around until they hatch in the summer. When she finds a suitable place to lay her eggs, she digs a hole about 2-3 inches deep and covers it with sand.

She then lays her eggs and covers them again. Once the eggs hatch, the baby crabs emerge and begin to look for food.
Snow crabs are not considered edible by humans. However, they do make good pets if kept properly. They are relatively docile and don’t pose much danger to people. They are sometimes kept as aquarium pets.
