dc.description.abstractThe blue crab (Callinectes sapidus Rathbun) fishery has become increasingly more important in the Gulf states. Reported landings for the Gulf in 1980 were in excess of 40 million pounds with an ex-vessel value approaching 10 million dollars. In addition to the commercial hard crab fishery, there exists a substantial recreational fishery and an expanding fishery for soft crabs. It is the purpose of this profile to present a synopsis of existing information on the biology of and fishery for blue crabs in the Gulf of Mexico.en_US
