Alaska King Crab Research Grants

Biologists developing the science and technology to raise wild red and blue king crab in hatcheries as a way to rebuild collapsed stocks in parts of Alaska have received $460,000 in grants and support to assess how the crab may fare in the wild.

Researchers at the Alaska King Crab Research, Rehabilitation and Biology (AKCRRAB) program will use the funds to study how juvenile king crab cope with predators, find food, and interact with other marine organisms, including other crab.
