Making It Grow taped a segment at Hudson’s Resturaunt in Hilton Head, S.C. Host and Clemson Extension Agent Amanda McNulty talked with owner Andrew Carmines about their soft shell crabs and also their oyster operation.  In the spring, Hudson’s has a soft shell crab shedding operation that includes shedding boxes in the packinghouse with a water circulating system to facilitate and manage the molting process. Once the crabs back out of their shells, they are immediately removed and served at the restaurant. Last year they shed out over 2,300 crabs
