Scroll through the internet and find fiction in Blue Crab Sizes. The Great Maryland Crab Company wants to share the truth!

No need to use fiction in crab sizing when using the Traditional Chesapeake Grading System. We use this scale to give you quality crabs.

The posers call smalls “Standards,” mediums “Selects,” and larges “Premiums.” These terms associate with oysters and shellfish, but not Blue Crabs. The deception doesn’t stop there. The Chesapeake Bay Traditional Grading Scale™ designates a large as 6”-6 ½ “. The new “creative” sizing marks the large as 5 ½”-6 ¼”. Any crab feasting lover knows that this discrepancy is HUGE! Or should I say not so huge. Our crew takes pride in the exact system of baiting, potting and sizing crabs and know that respecting the Bay parallels to treating the customers right. Bottom line, you’ll pick and enjoy more jumbo, lump and claw meat with a crab measuring 6”-6 ½” point-to-point.

Get your sizing here!

Our watermen turn the crab upside down and fix the points on the grading scale. Every healthy crab gets sorted into their equal sizes and then loaded quickly into our refrigerated truck for crab house delivery. Our crab house crew doublechecks the sizes and then steams or organizes for a fresh and superior delivery. Behold, nothing new, but timeless. The true crab sizes:

Supers: 7+ inches

X-Large: 6 ½ -7 inches

Large: 6-6 ½ inches

Mediums: 5 ½ -6 inches

Small: 5-5 ½ inches
