It is believed that crab meat was first eaten by the Ancient Romans. This product quickly fell in love with people due to its unique taste and unusual tenderness. During the Middle Ages, crabs were already actively consumed in England, as well as in some European countries close to the sea.

In the U.S., crabmeat, like most other products, was introduced to crab meat by European settlers who poured into the American continent in the 16th century.

Crab roe, which is considered a delicacy, is also in demand.
