EM1 20 SP king crabKing Crabs successfully hold their own in the Barents Sea

This article was featured in EUROFISH Magazine 1 / 2020

Red king crab (Paralithodes camtschaticus) is one of the best crustaceans that the cold northern seas have to offer. The species was originally only found in the north Pacific but in the 1960s Russian scientists introduced it to the Northeast Atlantic. The conditions in the new habitat suit the crab’s biological requirements and so their number has in the meantime spread there extensively.
