Also to know is, how many ounces of crab meat are in a pound?
Also, how much meat is in a pound of king crab legs? That what's most commonly served anyways. King crab is measured by the number of king crab legs it takes to reach 10 lbs of crab meat. A size of 6-9 would translate into 6-9 crab legs add up to 10 pounds of meat.
Additionally, how much crab meat is in a pound of snow crab legs?
) are about 2-2.5 lbs per crab for adult males or somewhere around there. Those are "alive" and fresh. I am pretty sure that processors soak them in a brine which "plumps" the meat and adds to weight. Don't know what the cluster weight would be on the 2-2.5lb whole crab though.
How much of a crab is edible?
Now scrape out the gooey stuff in the center of the crab's body's two equal solid parts. The greenish stuff is the liver, called the tomalley. You can eat it and many love this part of the crab. If you have a female crab and you see bright orange stuff inside, that is edible.
