Tanner crabs (Chionoecetes bairdi and C. opilio) are two of the four species of the genus Chionoecetes occurring in the eastern North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. They form the basis of a thriving domestic fishery from southeastern Alaska north through the Bering Sea. These crabs are also marketed under their trade names: snow crab (C. opilio) and Tanner crab (C. bairdi).

General description: Tanner crabs are brachyuran (meaning short-tailed) or true crab and constitute some of the most highly specialized of all crustaceans.  ...

Text from Alaska Dept of Fish and Game

This beatiful crustaecean was chosen as SECRAB's logo because of its  stature of security:

  • It is highly specialised and adapted to its environment
  • It is well protected by armour - its shell
  • It is armed and able to defend itself by its strong claws
  • It has swift mobility on its long legs
  • It also symbolises SECRAB's role as centre in an extensive network
  • It is indeed a SE(a)CRAB
  • (and finally - it is quite delicious)
