Stone crab

Yummy. Watch our video "How to harvest a stone crab claw" on our MyFWCvideos channel on Youtube.

 

Although the crab can still obtain minimal amounts of food with no claws, having one claw (if the other one is harvested) will enable the crab to obtain greater amounts of food in a shorter amount of time. Stone crabs (like other crustaceans) have the ability to grow back their claws, but this process requires a large amount of energy in the form of food.
