• We're Crazy about Crab

    Devon Crab is some of the finest in the world and we at The Blue Sea Food Company are proud to bring this West Country delicacy to your table.

    Every day come rain or shine our fishing boats deliver their sustainable catch to be lovingly prepared. Ensuring only the very finest crab arrives with you, straight from the sea.

    Blue Sea Crab is healthy, sustainable and above all delicious.

  • Corporate Social Responsibility - Sustainable Oceans

    The Blue Sea Food Company is an environmentally conscious organisation that acknowledges the potential impact our operations may have on the sustainability of the UK and EU crab fishery, fishing communities and the marine environment.

    We are actively engaged with fishermen, customers, government and organisations such as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Marine Conservation Society (MCS) to ensure the long-term health and sustainability of our fisheries and fishing communities.

    We are also committed to ensuring the welfare of all the shellfish we handle. We endeavour to employ practices designed to reduce stress and maximise quality from landing all the way through to humane dispatch.

    All of our crab and lobsters are caught using pots or creels design to enable escape of juvenile animals and allow eventual escape of all over time. Pots are checked regularly and retrieved if lost to avoid ‘ghost’ fishing.

    Pots and creels are a selective and passive form of fishing causing no damage to the marine environment. Importantly, crab and lobster are alive when brought to the surface so that any animal which is undersize, damaged, showing eggs or has recently shed its shell will be returned to the sea alive allowing them to grow and breed, contributing to a healthy stock. Any bycatch must also be handled with care and returned to the sea as quickly as possible.

    Both the Marine Conservation Society and the Marine Stewardship Council recognise crab caught within our local Inshore Potting Agreement, off the South Devon Coast, as an example of sustainable fishing.

  • Health Benefits
    of Devon Crab

    Low in fat, high in protein and rich in vitamins and Omega 3, Devon Crab also has many of the essential elements the body needs. A healthy intake of omega 3 is a well known way of reducing the risk of heart disease.

    • A portion of crab represents one of your 2-a-week seafood.
    • One of our dressed crab supplies your weekly requirement of Omega 3.
    • Crab is also rich in Copper, Zinc, Selenium, Vitamin B2 and is a very good source of Protein and Magnesium.

  • Hands on Approach

    Once our day boats have landed their crabs we cook them for only as long as necessary depending on the season. With our expertise we then pick out the meat using a combination of machines and nimble fingers to offer you quality crab meat at competitive prices.

    Our facilities and procedures are accredited to a Global Standard for Food Safety (BRCGS) and we continue to strive to bring you premium quality products.
