A previous study from Delaware Bay reported ovigerous
female pea crabs occurring during July-October with maximum densities of larvae in the water column in July (Christensen & McDermott 1958, Dittel & Epifanio 1982).
All the ovigerous
females (100%, n=22) were recorded and collected during the sampling efforts from May 2006 to April 2007.
36, that of Ovigerous
females (incubating) from 1% to 46% with mean of 20.
Female abdomen aspects were verified to determine their reproduction conditions and, consequently, whether they were ovigerous
females or not.
Oxygen uptake by Embryos and ovigerous
females of two intertidal crabs, Heterozius rotundifrons (Belliidae) and Cyclograpsus lavauxi (Grapsidae): scaling and the metabolic costs of reproduction.
The sole species known from the west coast of North America is Naushonia macginitiei (Glassell), described originally (as Homoriscus macginitiei) by Glassell based on two ovigerous
females collected from La Jolla, California, in 1935 (Glassell 1938: 414).
Research has shown that the shallow waters (<40 m) around Saint Matthew Island contain high densities of ovigerous
female blue king crab; presumably nearshore areas are also important for other populations of blue king crab in the northern portion of their range (NPFMC, 2000).
Migratory movements of ovigerous
lobsters Homarus americanus, tagged off Grand Manan, eastern Canada.
Specimens are common during the spring and summer months; ovigerous
females are present from March to September.
Egg clutches of ovigerous
red king crab were collected from Bristol Bay, AK (54[degrees]36'N, 58[degrees]39' N, 168[degrees]00' W), in June and July 2007 to 2010 for a multiyear reproductive potential project (Swiney et al.
Crabs that died in ghostfishing gear ranged from 69 to 160 mm CL and included 4 ovigerous
