Item Identification

Title: AFSC/RACE/SAP/Urban: Golden King Crab tagging
Short Name: AFSC/RACE/SAP/Urban: Golden King Crab tagging
Status: In Work

The data is comprised of the records of individual male golden king crab (GKC) tagged at the Kodiak Laboratory. Initial size, shell condition and missing limbs was recorded. A record of the water temperature was also made. Each crab received a leg tag to provide identification. Half the crab also received a spaghetti identical to those applied in the field. Tagged and untagged crab were held in identical conditions.


The purpose of the study is to provide empirical data to augment and collaborate data from long-term GKC tagging field projects conducted in the Aleutian Islands. Information on tagging mortality, tag shedding, and retention of the tags through a molting event is hoped to be acquired.
