Standard Male Maryland Blue Crabs - 1/2 Bushel

Cameron’s Seafood is proud to be a True Blue certified partner which means that they only sell 100% Authentic Maryland crabs.

Cameron’s Seafood ships their blue crabs nationwide on Goldbelly! These Jumbo blue crabs are caught, steamed to perfection, and carefully packed the same day your order ships.

What’s so special about Maryland blue crabs? It has to do with the unique weather and the type of estuary in the Chesapeake Bay. To sustain them through the winter, large blue crabs have to build up extra fat stores which give them that sweet, buttery flavor you won’t find in other types of crabs or in blue crabs from other waters. Founded in 1985 by brothers Allen and Bijan Manesh, Cameron’s Seafood in Rockville, Maryland, sells 75,000 bushels of crab annually. Cameron’s Seafood is a True Blue certified partner, which means they only sell 100% Authentic Maryland crabs.

I’m from Maryland and have been eating crabs for over 40 years. I usually go back a few times a year during crab season but due to Covid I’ve had to do the online thing. This is the third time this season that I’ve ordered a dozen online and by far these were the best. They were all fat (full) and fresh. Would def order again from Cameron. Very happy with my purchase.
