- Scientists look to fourth year of crab hatchery research
(December 18, 2009, Alaska Sea Grant)
Scientists studying how to hatch and raise large numbers of larval king crab recently received wild adult king crab broodstock for another year of research. The scientists say three years of research have helped them clear many of the technological and biological hurdles to hatching and raising large numbers of larval crab to the juvenile stage in a hatchery setting.
- AKCRRAB launches newsletter
Scientists involved in AKCRRAB research will highlight their work in a monthly newsletter called AKCRRAB News Flash. Subscribers will receive the newsletter electronically, and issues will be posted in the News Flash and News Flash Archives links under "Information" in the sidebar menu.
