TaiHu Hairy Crab Official Opening Ceremony 2015

TaiHu Hairy Crab Official Opening Ceremony 22 September 2015

Official harvesting ceremony of TaiHu Hairy Crab.

Here is a summary of some key points regarding the quality and sizes of the crabs this year written by two China online news agencies.

1. High water level of TaiHu Lake, high temperature during summer, instability of climate affected the molting of hairy crabs this year, which means larger crabs will be only available later in the season

2. Initial harvest of male hairy crabs will be approximately 150g – 200g while female hairy crabs will be approximately 125g – 150g.

3. As the Hairy Crab matures over the season, the quality would continually improve

4. Market price of larger hairy crabs harvested later in the season would be slightly higher than last year

To ensure that we will be able to keep our promise in delivering our signature quality Hairy Crabs, Hairy Crab at Home will be making another short trip down to TaiHu to ensure the quality and sizes of our initial batch of hairy crabs on the 3rd of October.

Keys points from: http://www.shuichan.cc/news_view.asp?id=258941
“By taking a sample measurement of this year’s harvest, due to the high water level of TaiHu Lake , instability of the climate and other factors, the lake’s production of small crab is expected to total about 2,700 tons. 3,000 tons less than last year.”

“Head of Dong Shan Li Jun Fisheries Cooperatives, Xu Jun commented that the high water level of TaiHu Lake, and the scarcity of water plants this year affected the last two molting of hairy crab shell which caused hairy crabs from the lake to be generally smaller compared to last year.”

“Wuzhong District Agricultural Bureau, Liu Long Jun stated that the main harvest of this year’s male hairy crabs is approximately 150g to 200g and female hairy crab is approximately 125g to 150g (Compared to last year male 225g to 250g, female 150g to 175g). He also commented that although the crabs harvested this year is slightly smaller, the quality is good.”

Keys points from: http://jiangsu.china.com.cn/html/2015/kuaixun_0924/2553669.html
“Professor of Shanghai Ocean University, Ministry of Agriculture Key Laboratory of Freshwater Germplasm Dr. Wang Chenghui told the Yangtze Evening News reporter, the high temperature this summer affected the molting of hairy crabs. This year’s hairy crabs will crab will mature late and the initial listing of catchable size will have an overall weight decline of 10% compared to last year. The decline does not mean the decrease in quality of the crabs, but crabs that mature later will improve their overall quality. He expects the market price of larger TaiHu Lake hairy crabs that will be harvested later in the season to be slightly higher than last year.”
