Bevi Seafood Co. carries live and boiled Louisiana Blue Crabs when the quality meets our standards, though Louisiana Blue Crab meat is available year round. You can boil crabs just like crawfish and eat the meat right out of the shell, or you can use the meat in a variety of dishes. You'll find four types of crab meat when you start opening the crab up: lump, jumbo lump, claw and crab fingers.
Soft Shell Crabs peak May through September, though they too are seen on menus throughout South Louisiana year round. Their soft shell means there is no peeling or cracking required.
