Cornwall Wild Velvet Crab
Wild Pot Caught Velvet Crab
Velvet swimming crabs are Small but tasty, spiny crabs that are very popular in Spanish cooking. Velvet crabs are caught in relatively small quantities by pot fishermen, specifically targeting velvet and green crabs in the Fal estuary, and are also caught as by catch in brown crab and lobster fisheries. Pot fishing is selective, as small specimens can be returned unharmed. Fishermen in the Fal only land male crabs and leave females in the sea to ensure the stocks are replenished. The vast majority of this catch is exported live to Spain.
