Florida Stone Crab Claws
Stone crabs are distinguished by their dark, brownish-red or tan shells, which are mottled gray when they are adults. This species has black-tipped claws, one larger than the other, and a smooth, shiny, round shell surface. Cooked meat is white. Stone crabs have very little body meat; their only product form is the enormous claw with adjoining knuckles. Fishermen catch the crab, remove the claw then return the crab to the ocean so it can grow another.
Nothing compares to taking large bites of crab. Dipped in butter or a sauce, stone crabs are a treat.

Rainbow ‘Green’, Golden, and Ruby trout
Green trout is what the guys on the farm call the regular rainbow trout. Since they have ruby and golden as well, it is just a term they use to distinguish between the three. Our ‘green’ trout is what every sales person calls rainbow trout. Red and golden continue to be very tight. The end is not in sight yet.
