One creature saved, but the wholesale destruction of life in the oceans continues without pause.

How can something weighing 15 pounds produce 20 pounds of meat?

Dang, that's one big crab. I read in the article that the Japanese spider crab is even larger. In any event impressive pics!

Maybe they meant, he could've produced 20lbs. worth of a dinner when you add in all the side dishes. mashed potato, bread sticks, cake and whatever else people eat with crab dinners (never having had a crab dinner myself).
