Origins

All our hairy crabs are directly air flown from China (TaiHu). TaiHu is the third largest lake in China located directly upstream of the famous
YangChengHu. There are numerous reasons why hairy crabs from TaiHu are preferred instead of those from the main lake of YangChengHu:

  • Lake TaiHu sits on the upper stream of Yangcheng Lake, the waters there are purer and thus a more ideal breeding ground for hairy crabs.
  • The lake water is fed directly by the mountain streams which brings rich nutrients and minerals.
  • Lake TaiHu hairy crabs, are known for their quality and are extremely sweet and tasty.
  • The hairy crabs of Lake Taihu are known for their tender meat and rich fragrant roe/milt.
