Pontchartrain Blue Crab, Inc.
Processor

Pontchartrain Blue Crab Inc. is a crab meat processor located on the shores of Lake Pontchartrain in Slidell, Louisiana. Since it was founded in 1996, the focus of Pontchartrain Blue Crab (PBC) has been to support local commercial fishermen, and to preserve the traditional way of life so unique to southeast Louisiana while observing sustainable fishing practices.

Sold under the brand name ‘Pontchartrain Blues’, PBC’s domestic crabmeat line is composed exclusively of blue crab. The meat is pressure cooked with steam, and then double cleaned by staff to ensure minimal shell content for a quality end product. PBC sources their crab meat entirely from fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico, including the Louisiana blue crab fishery which received MSC certificaiton in 2012.

PBC is also involved with and operates the Yucatan Crab Fishery Improvement Project. Launched in 2013, the project aims to improve fisheries by meeting or exceeding the global standards set by MSC for sustainable fisheries, and the credibility criteria of the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions. Preliminary improvements include the creation of a landings registry in order to monitor fishing catches, and ultimately track changes over time in regards to species mix, size, and landing location. As of 2016, the Fishery Improvement Project (FIP) is developing a guide to better local compliance with fishery rules. The FIP builds upon the relationship between processors, packers, and fishers to support good management practices and strengthen the fishery.
