Centolla (Lithodes antarticus = L. santolla) South American King Crab, Emperor Crab

Harvested off the southern tip of Chile this crab lives on sandy and stony sea beds at depths of 1,900 feet.  The meat resembles that of the Alaskan king Crab but most think it is sweeter with thicker mirrus meat (upper leg) sections.

Processing is very delicate due to sharp spines dispersed over the body and legs.

Available: Cooked frozen, whole gutted, meat, claws, canned

July to November are peak landings.
