There must be more blue crabs in Lake Maracaibo than Kelloggs has cornflakes. That is the only explanation for why fresh Venz HPP jumbo lump is selling for $16.95 a pound. That is $35 less per pound than Maryland jumbo lump. It is $24 less per pound than Indonesian jumbo lump. So take advantage of this market glut and feature crabmeat on several dishes on your spring menus. We expect Venz jumbo pricing to remain well under the $20 mark through Mother’s Day.
