Culture and management of scylla spp.

Objective

The proposed research aims to improve the reliability of hatchery and nursery production of mud crabs, providing seed crabs for development of mangrove- aqua salve culture systems, particularly in disused shrimp ponds. Hatchery-production will also support further development of stock enhancement to improve mud crab fisheries in mangroves. Detailed fisheries and population studies will determine recruitment and productivity in crab fisheries in established and replanted mangroves, supporting selection of Scylla species for stock enhancement and comparison of the cost-benefits of stock enhancement and habitat rehabilitation as strategies for improving crab fishery yields.
