The brown crab

Known locally as the brown crab, this robust species thrives in the waters around Great Britain, as well as the coasts of the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark. Favouring rocky seabeds, they can be found at depths of up to 100 meters.

At Verwijs’ Kreeftenparken, we collaborate with seasoned fishermen to capture brown crab, ensuring the freshest delivery through our direct supply lines.

Available year-round, the brown crab peaks in supply from May through December. During the colder months, as water temperatures drop, crabs become less active, making them more challenging to catch.

The white meat found in its claws is renowned for its sweet flavour. The crab’s shells are also ideal for crafting rich broths and soups.

Sustainability is at the forefront of our harvesting methods. The traps we use are environmentally friendly, leaving the seabed undisturbed, thereby preserving our marine ecosystems.
