Abstract

Limb loss and the frequency of regeneration was investigated in the male blue king crabParalithodes platypus collected in the Sea of Okhotsk and the Bering Sea. TheP. platypus population in the Bering Sea is characterized by an anomalously high proportion of crabs with missing limbs, which is largely due to the intensive fishing. The present approach to the exploitation of the Bering Sea population, in which large intact crabs are removed and injured crabs are left to recover to the normal state, may result in a decline in the reproductive potential of this population as early as this coming year.
