Interagency Crab Meeting 2010

Another year, another fun get-together of all the Alaskan crab researchers! There's nothing like hanging out with a room full of crab lovers (I was trying to write that phrase in latin, but it would come out as cancerphiles or something, and that just didn't express the right message).

This year the meeting highlighted Crustacean Enhancement and Genetics,
with these presentations:

Developing genetic fingerprinting techniques for lobster seeding trials in New England - Rick Wahle (University of Maine) [I love lobsters and got to work with them on Long Island!]

Some population genetic considerations for red king crab management in Alaska - Dave Tallmon

Update on genetic studies of snow and king crabs at ADF&G - Stew Grant

three crab girls enjoying the sights:
Courtney Lyons, Miranda Westphal, and me

Evidence of predator-induced behavioral plasticity of juvenile red king crab (Paralithodes camtschaticus) - Ben Daly

Qualitative modeling of the Pribilof Island blue king crab fishery - Courtney Lyons

Growth of juvenile red king crab, Paralithodes camtschaticus, in Alaska - Miranda Westphal

Interannual variability in pre-hatch fecundity of eastern Bering Sea snow crab, Chionoecetes opilio - Matt Catterson
