    No crabbing their act

     

    Meet the crab king (left) and queen. They were crowned yesterday at the national hairy crab contest held in Shanghai. King Crab weighs 523.8 grams and is from Anhui Province; Queen Crab is 361 grams from Jiangxi Province. More than 1,800 crabs from 70 aqua farms around China participated in this year’s competition, the 11th of its kind — known as the Oscar for hairy crabs. Organized by Shanghai Ocean University, the competition measures the size, weight, appearance and taste of the crabs. Hairy crabs are considered a delicacy by many people across China and autumn and early winter is the best time to taste the delicacy.
