More Information On Maryland Soft Shell Crabs

Want to learn how crabs get their soft shells? A crab becomes a soft shell when it goes through a molting phase. This means the crab is forming a new larger soft shell under its hard shell. The crab then sheds the hard shell and becomes a soft shell. Crabs only stay in a soft shell for a few hours, which makes it more difficult to catch soft shells. Soft shells are in season from May through October, but you can purchase them frozen and enjoy them all year long.

Jumbo Maryland Soft Shell Crabs

If you're searching for delicious Maryland soft shell crabs for sale, you've come to the right place. Harbour House Crabs has been a proud supplier of Maryland soft shell crabs and other premium seafood for over two decades and has developed a reputation for providing our customers unparalleled quality. 

Soft shell crabs are delicious because they have not yet grown back their hard outer shell, allowing the entire crab to be eaten. As a result, soft shells can be only harvested during specific times of the year. We harvest small, medium, large, and jumbo size soft shells so that they can be frozen and shipped fresh ASAP.

Harvested from the beautiful Chesapeake Bay, you can expect our crabs to be on par with — if not better than — restaurant quality. Whether you enjoy the flavor of crabs baked, deep-fried with egg, flour, butter, Old Bay, salt, and pepper, or pan-fried with crab seasonings and tossed into your salad bowl, the fresh soft shell crabs from our business are sure to be a delicacy.
