(2008) observed that the proportion of meat yield was 26.0% for males and 19.3% for females, which is relative to the weight of the whole animal, and that the harvest practiced by fishermen excluded ovigerous females and specimens with a carapace
width of < 6.0 cm, which may indicate that the community is aware of the need to preserve the species.
Seven morphometric characteristics were measured for each specimen (see Simon & Stewart 2014) --carapace length (CL), postorbital carapace
length (POCL) [from the anterior margin of postorbital spine to the posterior margin of the carapace], carapace
width (CW), carapace
depth (CD), chelae length (ChL), chelae width (ChW), and abdomen width (ABW).
The data analyzed are x and y coordinates of the 22 landmark points of the dorsal carapace
of the redclawed crabs.
very low, height is only 25-30 % of its length.
The results by claw shell and carapace
chitosan were not within the reported values in literature.
A power equation was used to describe the relationship between Panopeus herbstii carapace
width (mm) and total dry weight (g) for the feeding crabs and 14 other mud crabs that were collected concurrently from Clambank Landing.
pelagicus from the different growth stages (zoea, megalopa, first crab, and adult) and from wild adults (5-7 cm carapace
width) were dialyzed overnight against 50 mM Tris-HCl buffer pH 8.2 before use for determining in vitro digestibility.
Specifically, adhesive should be applied around the transmitter to cover a larger surface area and increase the angle between the PTT and carapace
I determined age using annuli on scutes from the carapace
and plastron (Bury and Germano, 1998; Germano and Bury, 1998).
sinensis group now contains 18 species from the Indo-West Pacific (Osawa 2018; Werding and Hiller 2019) and is primary characterized by the carapace
without spines on the lateral margins, the chela with various degrees of setation on the dorso-anterior surface and the dactyli of the ambulatory legs each with the dorsal claw much smaller than the ventral.
falcatus was about 30 centimeters long and had a carapace
shaped like a shield or spaceship on its back.
