The production of blue crab in Lake Maracaibo is still extremely high given the time of year. Collectively around the Lake, an estimated 200,000 kilos of blue crab are being caught daily. Huge shipments of meat arrive in Miami several times a week. Shippers struggle to sell it all, especially the lump. The retail stores traditionally take the lion’s share of the lump produced, but they are “no where to be found” this year. We will drop another $1 per pound to begin this week at $18.50/lb on beautiful fresh HPP jumbo lump, $12.95/lb on fresh lump, and $15.95/lb on fresh superclaw. (Full Newsletter)
