Does the blue crab taste different than the normal ones? I didn't think it would.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

Curried crab is one of my favourite dishes! I'd like to go to the Caribbeans some day as well!

Yummy! I love crab meat!! It's very expensive here in the midwest. About the closest thing to that around here are crawfish..which are yummy! But you need so many to make a meal..it turns into quit the job. I think lobster is my favorite but even that can cost up to $25 a tail around here.

Whole lobsters are $4/lb right now on the East Coast.

BBShiva, Post the cooked crab pictures. I want to see.

If I was in the area I would go crab hunting all week long. I read somewhere they're hard to catch, & their claws can puncture tires, but I'd use a hockey stick & a big 30 gallon barrel. I think it would be fun.
