Red Crab Debuts at Hampton Processors

The Atlantic red crab came to Hampton on June 26—just in time for the 4th of July. It was the first of many shipments that will total 1 million pounds by the end of the year. Harvested from deep waters off the coast of North Carolina, the Atlantic red crab was dropped off at L.D. Amory and Co. Inc, and then moved a few hundred feet to Graham & Rollins Inc. to be steamed and picked.
