GW Hall on Hooper’s Island started picking a few Chesapeake Bay blue crabs last week. The dock price of picking crabs is high ($125/bu for females), which translates to high prices on local meat. Fresh jumbo lump will start at $49 a pound. Yes, you can get three pounds of Venezuelan jumbo lump for every pound of Maryland you buy. Retail is pretty much the only outlet for local meat at these prices.
Prices are subject to change.
