The Chilean rock crab fishery went into pre-assessment in mid 2016. Pre-assessment went well for this fishery with the exception of not having enough historical data on bycatch. The pre-assessment will now continue in order for the pre-assessment team to collect additional data on the bycatch. The artisanal fishermen set and haul single pot lines at relatively shallow depths which allows bycatch to be released back into the ocean. The collection of data should go relatively quick and we hope to have the fishery in full MSC assessment soon.
Facing supply and price issues with Dungeness crab meat look to Seatech's Chilean crab meat pack to seamlessly blend with Dungeness to bring down plate costs. For over 30 years our customers have used our crab meat to blend with Dungeness with great success. I won't name names but you may find it surprising to find out the high caliber restaurants that have done this. Dungeness crab meat processors also make a blend pack with our crab meat. The flavor profile is closer to Dungeness than other cab meat packs. Once blended most people will not be able to tell the difference especially when it comes to value added items such as crab cakes. It is simple, to bring your costs back under control add our crab meat to your Dungeness.
