Spider crabs rebranded as ‘Cornish king crab’

-

Up until now, 95 percent of megrim fish and 85 percent of spider crab have been exported to Spain, but post-Bexit, to boost their appeal with British consumers, the megrim will be known as ‘Cornish sole‘, and the aforementioned spider crabs will be ‘Cornish king crab‘.

This rebranding of a species is nothing new – the Patagonian toothfish was renamed Chilean seabass in the US and Canada.
