Hatchery-reared juvenile king crabs, such as this blue king crab, have been studied in a variety of projects.
One of the goals of the AKCRRAB program is to share research results with the scientific community to advance the fields of shellfish aquaculture and king crab biology. The program has made great strides in this area. AKCRRAB biologists at the University of Alaska, the Alutiiq Pride Shellfish Hatchery, and NOAA Fisheries published articles in 2013 in peer-reviewed journals including Aquaculture, Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, PLOS One, and the Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology.
Publications covered investigations of predation on hatchery-reared animals in the wild and cannibalism in the lab; refinements of culture of larvae and juveniles through improvements in diet, density, and temperature; development of health indices for hatchery-reared larvae; and studies of the effects of ocean acidification on king crab larvae. Twenty-three articles have been published in the last five years.
