Soft shell King crab could fetch premium prices

HE King crab can now be eaten without removing its shell, if it is handled and prepared right after moulting, when the shell is completely soft, says Norwegian research institute, Fiskeriforskning.

The shell and crab can then be consumed once the mouth, stomach, intestine and gills have been removed.

Soft-shell crab is an exclusive product at Asian restaurants, and soft-shell crabs can achieve five times the price than the equivalent crab with a hard shell.
