Alaskan Crab Co proudly supports local marine ecology initiatives and research.
Russian scientists in particular, dedicate vast resources into research on Alaskan King Crab. The history of this fascinating animal in the Bering Sea has captivated the world.
A recent article from Reuters suggests that The Kamchatka Crabs were introduced by Josef Stalin in the 1930s in an attempt to provide food and industry to the Russian masses. These early attempts failed, but finally in the 1960s, crab population rocketed, reaching millions in the 1990s, just after the end of the Cold War.
In some parts of the world, they have grown to epic numbers, particularly in Norway, but none match the taste and flavour of an Alaskan King Crab.
