Bathynectes maravigna was relatively frequent in catches, as an indication of its abundance in deep waters off the Archipelago (0.15 gram per fishing hour; SD = 0.45). This crab was captured in the whole range of depths sampled, although its highest biomass was found between 600 and 1000 m (0.22 gram per fishing hour; SD = 0.55), on
