Founded with a single boat in 1996 by Jon Williams, the Atlantic Red Crab Co. is based in the historic port of New Bedford, MA. Through self-imposed regulation and routine assessment, the company quickly became renowned for its sustainable practices. The Atlantic Red Crab Co. continues to lead the commercial fishing industry in sustainable practices.


With an average weight of one-pound, red crab is known for its delicious, sweet taste and red-tinted meat. Available live, fresh, or frozen, both whole and in clusters.


Between 70 and 110 feet in length, our 14 vessels are crewed by four deckhands and one captain. A typical fishing trip lasts from seven to nine days (dock to dock) and produces approximately 70,000 pounds of live crab.
