Our fresh Maine crab meat is processed up in Tenants Harbor by Mainers who have been cooking and picking crab for generations. The process of hand-picking crab yields an extremely high-quality product.
Because our crab meat has already been cooked it is ready to eat right out of the cup. One of the favorite ways to enjoy this crab meat in Maine is to make crab rolls. It is equally good in crab cakes and salads.
It is funny to think that many years ago lobstermen would haul these crabs up in their traps and simply throw them back. They had very little commercial value. Now, Maine crab meat is shipped across the United States to some of the finest restaurants in the country.

Maine Crab Cake Recipe
Making crab cakes is one of our favorite ways to enjoy this fresh Maine crab meat. For a step-by-step guide to making crab cakes our way here. This crab-cake recipe was created by SoPo's Jacqueline Clark (AKA The Briny Babe).
Why Crab Meat and not Live Crabs?
The species of Maine crab that is caught and picked for our fresh crab meat is called "sand crab," "rock crab," and "Peekytoe Crab". This particular species of crab does not ship very well live - tending to perish in transit. Because of this, cooking and picking soon after trapping is necessary.
Cooking and picking live crabs is a time-intensive and messy job. When you buy crab meat that has already been cooked and picked, all you have to do is open the container and enjoy. We would recommend crab meat, even if you could buy live sand crabs online.

"I started using SoPo Seafood during the pandemic because I couldn't resist the opportunity of receiving fresh local seafood delivered to my door. I was not disappointed! The service has been outstanding, the fish is so fresh and delicious, and the prices are reasonable. I highly recommend them!"

"I have been ordering regularly from SoPo Seafood for a couple of months now. I LOVE this service. The product is top notch, the communication great and delivery as promised. Providing my family with the freshest seafood while supporting a small business and our local fishing industry is a Win-Win in my book. If you haven't already, give them a try...you won't be disappointed.
