Abstract

Along the east coast of North Kurils, the egg deposits of Careproctus snailfishes (Scorpaeniformes: Liparidae) were revealed in the gill cavity of 9.9% of all golden king crabs, mostly in individuals with carapace of 61–80 mm width (61.6%). The number of Careproctus eggs in the gill cavity of crabs increased with the increase of the carapace width. In fact, 97.0% of the crabs had such egg deposits only at one side of their carapaces. Most of the egg deposits, apparently, belonged to C. cypsellurus and C. furcellus. The number of crabs with egg deposits was related to the number of post-molt individuals. Evidently, egg depositing by Careproctus snailfishes out of the gill cavity of crabs is a rather widespread phenomenon.
