Red snow crab from Japan

Red snow crabs belong to the same family and genus as Pacific snow crabs.
They mainly live in the Sea of Japan from the San'in region and northward, and in the Pacific Ocean from Choshi City and northward. They live at depths of 400m–2,700 m, but are most commonly found at depths of 1,000–2,000 m. Compared with Pacific snow crabs, they have some red coloring on their shells even before they are cooked.
Also, compared to Pacific snow crabs, Red snow crabs cost only about one-fifth to one-tenth, making them a cost-effective alternative. They are loved by many.
