Despite the importance of food intake, feed ration has not been determined for many crabs. Juvenile red king crabs of mean size 25–30 mm carapace length (CL) were fed to satiation with squid either once or twice weekly for 6 months. Feed ration (FR = consumption expressed as a proportion of wet body mass) increased to a peak of about 0.10 at 30 days(More)
In this study, we applied systematic adaptive cluster sampling (SACS) to assess the abundance of black sea bass Centropristis striata on hard bottom habitats in the Mid-Atlantic Bight (MBA; USA). We used a remote underwater video system to obtain video recordings of black sea bass from 25 June to 6 August 2013 within a 25-square nautical mile (nmi2)(More)
