Juvenile Blue Crab Mortality at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center
Entry ID: siserc_crab001

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Tethering techniques are used to assess sources of and temporal
variation in juvenile blue crab mortality as a function of water depth
in the nearshore shallows of the Rhode River subestuary. Twenty-five
crabs are tethered at each of 3 depths and checked for mortality
at 24 and 48 hours. Measurements are taken three times per year in
June, July and August.

Location: Canning House Bay in Rhode River, Edgewater, Anne Arundel
County, Maryland.
