Santolla Crab


Santolla Crab

Santolla Red Crab is known for its delicate flavor and rich meat texture. The Southern Hemisphere's low-cost equivalent to the Alaskan King Crab, Santolla Red Crab also boasts a snowy white meat with a beautiful scarlet red membrane. This wild-caught, all-natural product is harvested, cooked and frozen at sea in Argentina.

A thriving fishery that continues to grow, Santolla Red Crab is fully traceable and easy to import into the US. Active and ongoing management ensures that only officially licensed boats with permits can harvest.
