When is the Maryland Blue Crab season?
The peak season for Maryland Blue Crabs is from April to the end of November. The biggest, heaviest crabs are typically harvested during the fall months (September to mid-November).
In December, as the weather cools down, crabs from the Chesapeake Bay head towards the warmer waters. During this “off-season,” we offer either flash-frozen Maryland Blue Crabs or “Maryland-style” Blue Crabs from North Carolina and Louisiana.
