Now to May 15-Stone Crab Season!

But ouch, according to the Sun Sentinel, those claws are going to pinch your wallets and pocketbooks. After the lowest harvest on record for the 2018-2019 season that ended in May (1.9 million pounds), fishers and crabbers are hoping for a rebound in supply. Sanchez says retail consumers should expect to pay $21-$26 a pound for medium claws, $37-$40 per pound for large, $45-$50 for jumbos and over $50 for colossal.  Tuesday’s arrival of the ocean treat also came draped in uncertainty. Last year’s supply was dinged by the aftereffects of red tide and Hurricane Michael. The harvest keeps dipping dramatically, and researchers are trying to determine if it’s a cyclical downturn or more worrisome existential threat to the native species triggered by climate change and warming seas. The 2017-2018 haul was 2.1 million pounds. Annual harvests used to regularly exceed 3 million pounds, according to state statistics. By the way, if you get them cracked at the store, it’s best to eat them within 12 hours. If you buy them uncracked, they can be refrigerated and eaten within two days. Where to get them:

Joe’s Stone Crab — 11 Washington Ave., Miami Beach, 305-673-0365. (Note: in its 106 season!)
Billy’s Stone Crab — 400 N. Ocean Drive, Hollywood, 954-923-2300.
Catfish Deweys — 4003 N. Andrews Ave, Fort Lauderdale, 954-566-5333.
Kelly’s Landing — 305 SE 17th St., Fort Lauderdale, 954-760-7009
Truluck’s — Galleria Mall, 2584 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954-396-5656, and 777 Brickell Ave., Miami, 305-579-0035
