Soft-shell crabs …
In Thailand, where soft-shell crab farming is well established, many seafood processing plants buy the soft-shell crabs directly from the farmers. …In other countries, large farms establish their own freezing facilities or make contracts with processing plants….The sorting of soft-shell crabs is based on the following size ranges: extra large (>200 g), large (151-200 g), medium (101-150 g) and small (50-100 g). Crabs may be packed whole, or without one or more body parts (eyes, mouth parts, gills and abdominal flap).
