Jonah, Atlantic Dungeness
Jonah crabs are oval-shaped like Dungeness crabs, but with bigger claws. They have reddish shells and white undersides. Raw meat is translucent white; cooked meat is white with brownish-red highlights. It is flaky and sweet, often compared to Dungeness or stone crab, though it’s darker and heavier in texture than Dungeness.
The biggest market for Jonah crab is processors and food manufacturers that ”blend” the less expensive meat with Dungeness or blue-crab meat.
