2011-Present Alaska King Crab (AKCRRAB) Program


The BSFRF is continuing its annual support of the AKRRAB program, which conducts research on the life history and general biology of Alaska King Crab Stocks by hatching and rearing wild red and blue king crabs in a large-scale hatchery setting. This research seeks to understand the large-scale culturing needs of wild red and blue king crab stocks for hatching and rearing king crab to a stage where they can potentially be released into the wild and contribute to reversing low wild stock abundance in Alaska. See links below for further details.
