1. BUY & ASK

The first step is acquiring green crabs. Ask your local fish counter, supermarket, or restaurant if they are carrying green crabs. Even if they are not currently in stock, just asking is a great way to familiarize your vendor with the crab. Plus, the wholesaler for these vendors often has access to green crabs. Ask if you can coordinate a special order or explore our wholesale supplier list.

*Due to food handling concerns, we do not recommend purchasing green crabs directly from bait shops.
