25 May Doumen Peeler Crab
Peeler crabs are simply hard shell blue crabs (Callinectes sapidus) that show signs of molting.The molting process, commercially called shedding, is when the hard shell is cast off and the new soft shell emerges. In the soft condition, the shell expands to a larger size before rehardening. Peeler crabs is the term given to blue crabs that are in a pre-molt stage. Identification of pre-molt crabs is the key to the success of softshell crab operations since prolonged time in a shedding facility increass the chance of mortality, requires feeding, decreases water quality and increases operating costs.
Peelers require special handling on the boat to avoid leg damage and drying out. A shallow container covered with damp burlap helps to prevent exposure to the sun. Leave an air pocket of 3 to 4-inches between the burlap and the crabs. Peelers should be placed in a shedding system with a salinity similar to their harvest areafor the most successful shedding. Doumen peeler crab is one of the most delicious foods in Zhuhai. Known for their thick, hard shells, the crabs taste tender and fresh, occasionally tipping the scales at over a kilogram each, attracting enthusiastic diners from nearby Hong Kong and Macao.
