      You might be better of getting canned rather than trying to find "fresh".

      AFAIK there's no "fresh" Blue Crab type meat in Florida. That would mean someone was both catching and picking them here, and that's not happening AFAIK.

      The canned is excellent, I've gotten it at Costco but I imagine other fish markets have it as well, for example check Capt Franks on BBB in Boynton just E of 95.

          Franks often closes for a month during the dead season - I thought it used to be September - but maybe it's now.

        I am a fan of the canned Costco crab. It's better quality and better value than what I've found at Whole Foods. Be sure to to keep it in the fridge!
