I'd not really thought about whether anyone would eat those things or not but it seems that, despite their size, only the roe is in any way edible. It seems they can contain the same toxin as the blowfish/pufferfish. :rip:

Horseshoe Crab Poisoning

The proper cleaning of the roe of the Horseshoe Crab is extremely important. Though there is not much other 'flesh' what little there is is said to cause an unpleasant dizziness if consumed.

There have been numerous cases of poisoning after eating Horseshoe Crab eggs and several deaths in Thailand and Cambodia. This is attributed to the powerful neurotoxin, tetrodotoxin, the same as can be found in Fugu. There is now a test kit available which works along the lines of a pregnancy test kit to check for tetrodotoxin. It may well be that the neurotoxin only occurs at certain times of the year or, as has been suggested in research that it is only present in the Mangrove Horseshoe Crab Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda (South China Sea to the Indian subcontinent) and not in other Horseshoe Crab species.

"Although the current findings showed that the Cambodian C. rotundicauda was a moderately toxic species, they are not suitable for human consumption due to their toxicity"
