Carapace width-total weight relation of blue crabs from Galveston Bay, Texas.
MetadataShow full item record
Regression equations were developed between total weight (W) and carapace width (C) of blue crabs, Callinectes sapidus, taken from Galveston Bay, Texas. Male crabs (Log W= -3.74149 + 2.77478 Log C) were significantly heavier than females (Log W = 3.54147 + 2.63954 Log C) for a given carapace width. (AA)
