Well, it’s official: our favorite fall activity is now just one week away. We’re talking, of course, about Stone Crab Season– officially open on October 15th — that beautiful time of year when experts and novices alike can take to the waters to search for the beautiful (and sustainable!) crabs whose tender, sweet claw meat is considered one of the great delicacies of the Florida Keys. This year’s opening week will also include a Claw Eating Contest, so interested parties are encouraged to start their training now (crab cakes for breakfast, anyone?) Registration for the contest can be completed at: http://www.keysfisheries.com/events/
Mark your calendars, the countdown has begun!
